Palm Sunday celebrations - part 1

Saturday evening started the Palm Sunday celebrations in our parish with a procession following the blessing of palms. Two donkeys, Poncho and Daisy led our procession, helped by the Rossi family, while the donkeys were lent to us by the Jansen family. 
The congregation met in the back of the school, and after the palm blessing and the reading of the Gospel, the procession proceeded towards the church. Another donkey will participate in Sunday's Masses, and more photos will appear in tomorrow's blog.  This is the start of the Holy Week celebrations which culminate with Holy Thursday, Good Friday and Easter.
