Palm Sunday Mass
3/24/2013 (Updated 11:23:49 PM)Sunday was one of the holiest days of the year for Christians around the world.
Sunday was Palm Sunday, a day which commemorates when Jesus triumphantly entered into Jerusalem. At St.Thomas Aquinas Catholic Church in Binghamton, parishioners were asked to take part in a procession with palms at the beginning of the mass.
"Following the procession we have Liturgy of the Word and we have the reading of the passion today and it recalls the events leading up to Jesus on the cross. So, we begin on a joyful note and conclude on a more somber note as we enter into the holiest of weeks," said Pastor John Putnam, St. Thomas Aquinas Church.
After celebrating mass, parishioners were given palms of their own, to take home.
