From Palms to Passion

The Palm Sunday services on April 17 took the St. Catherine’s congregation on Christ’s journey from His triumphal entry into Jerusalem along a road strewn with palms to His Passion – betrayal by a friend, trial and crucifixion.  The service began with a procession that recalled the entry into Jerusalem complete with palm branches and donkeys and proceeded to a re-enactment of the betrayal, trial and crucifixion.  In the evening, a Seder supper recalled Christianity’s roots in Judaism – the Last Supper was a Seder – and showed how Christ revealed to his disciples that he was the One who had been awaited for over 1,000 years.
