Palm Sunday 2001
April 7, 2001

Father Andrew gives his sermon.

St. Luke celebrated Christ's entry into Jerusalem by decorating the church with palms and branches. After Liturgy the entire congregation led by the altar servers & clergy and carrying palms and branches made a procession around the church while singing hymns. In the procession the Church is Jerusalem and we are the children singing, "Hosanna! Blessed is He who comes in the name of the Lord." (John 12)

At the end of the procession around the church, the congregation had the end of the service. The people of the church start off the procession. The people prepare to go around the church.

Wow, the special effects are amazing.

At this rate we could dig the foundation ourselves.
