Holy Week
 
On Palm Sunday, Christians enter into Holy Week. This day opens before the Christian community the final period of preparation before the celebration of the Three Days of the Lord's passion, death, and resurrection. 

At sunset on Maundy Thursday (4-18), Lent comes to an end as the church begins the celebration of the events through which Christ has become the life and the resurrection for all who believe.

PRAYER FOR PLACING PASLMS IN THE HOME
(use this blessing when placing palms in the home after the Palm Sunday Liturgy)
Blessed is the one who comes in the name of the Lord! 
May we who place these palms receive Christ into our midst with the joy that marked the entrance to Jerusalem. May we hold no betrayal in our hearts, but peacefully welcome Christ who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, now and forever. Amen.
