Palm Sunday 2011

It was Palm Sunday last April 17th and it’s our tradition to hear mass and bring our “palaspas” (decorative palm fronds) made from coconut leaves. Palm Sunday is the commemoration of the arrival of the Lord Jesus Christ to Jerusalem.IMG_0822IMG_0825  Inside our church. People waving their palaspasIMG_0828After the Holy Mass, the priest or lay ministers will then blessed our palaspas inside and outside the church with Holy Water. We decided to just go outside and have it blessed. Look how many people gather to have it blessed. Those blessed palms will then be placed on windows or top of doors with the belief that it can ward evil spirits.
