Palm Cross Workshop

By Carolyn Ayres

Palm Sunday commemorates the start of Holy Week and the events leading up to Easter and the Resurrection. It is the day of Jesus’ triumphal entry into Jerusalem riding a humble donkey as his followers waved palm branches and covered his path with them. Since ancient times palms have been symbolic of peace, victory and eternal life. Palm Sunday reminds Christiams of Jesus’ victory over sin and death so that we can have eternal life. Palm Sunday invites Christians to welcome Jesus into their hearts and to be willing to follow him as their Lord and Savior.

When we celebrate Palm Sunday on March 24 there will be palms all around us. There will be palms in the church, we will process into the church carrying palms and we will each be given a palm cross to wear. Have you ever wondered where those palm crosses come from? Here at Grace, we don’t order them from a Christiam supply company – our parishioners make them! And you can help! If you would like to learn how to make a palm cross, please join us on Saturday, March 23, in the Parish House at 1 pm. As your hands learn to form a cross you may find your heart drawing ever closer to Jesus!
