More from Palm Sunday

Palm Sunday procession at the 10 AM Mass
The first three Masses at St Francis of Assisi parish in Bend started outside with the blessing of the palms, followed by a procession towards the church.The procession was led by our donkey Pimmy who got her 45 minutes of fame as she devoutly followed the proceedings and led the congregation to the church for Mass with the readings of the passion of Christ. I thank Diana Levey who lent us Pimmy, as well as the Bomke girls, Makenna and Kelsea who led the donkey at all three celebrations. This is a tradition that has taken roots here in Bend, as will hopefully be a memory people will cherish for a lifetime, especially through these photos.
