    Name: Palm Sunday
    Date: April 14, 2019
    Event Description:
    Palm Sunday commemorates Jesus Christ's last, triumphant entry into Jerusalem before his crucifixion. According to the Gospels, as Jesus entered Jerusalem on a donkey, the crowds greeted him by waving and laying palm branches in his path. Today, palms are still used during Palm Sunday ceremony. The palms are blessed during the ceremony and then collected and burned into ash for the following year's Ash Wednesdaycelebration. Palm Sunday is celebrated annually on the Sunday before Easter.
