Palm Sunday

Palm Sunday is the Sunday before Easter Sunday when Jesus rode into Jerusalem to great acclaim and shouts of Hosanna! It marks the start of Holy Week.

On Palm Sunday we have the opportunity to meet up outside church and dress up in biblical costumes so that we can walk through the streets of Hattersley via a circular route up to St Barnabas’ Church carrying our palms. Some years we have had a real donkey and other years we have dressed one of our children up. We always get a warm welcome from our friends at St Barnabas’ and are welcomed in as the start of their Palm Sunday Service. We then process back to St James’ in time for the start of our Palm Sunday Mass. Family and friends are more than welcome to join us!
