Palm Sunday marks the beginning of Holy Week.
For Catholics it is the 'heads up' liturgy that reminds us that we are entering into a very sacred time. If we don't know it yet this is a great reminder....
During this extraordinary time of COVID-19 restrictions we are trying to maintain our awareness of this sacred season.
Rituals, like praying the Stations of the Cross, fasting, special efforts at almsgiving and efforts to grow our faith lead us to a more profound celebration of the sacred mysteries of our faith.
In light of that we are gong to try to make palms available to our parishioners:
On Sunday, April 5th, palms will be distributed from the MAIN DOOR OF THE PARISH OFFICE. All people will be asked to REMAIN IN THE VEHICLE. Fr. Doug will 'glove up' and he will hand you a palm. We will try to maintain the appropriate distance. Fr. Doug will be available FROM 12:00 noon UNTIL 1:30 pm.
He will then travel to ST. JUDE'S, GREEN LAKE and offer palms FROM 2:30 UNTIL 3:30 pm from the back of his vehicle. Again people will be asked to REMAIN IN THEIR VEHICLE to receive the palm and then return home.
Let us continue to pray for one another as we enter into Holy Week in preparation for the Easter Triduum, the Great Three Days (sundown on Holy Thursday to sundown on Easter Sunday).
