Today is Palm Sunday. We carry palms and acclaim Christ as Messiah and King, like the crowds
who welcomed him to Jerusalem.

The 10:00am Mass begins with the Blessing of Palms at O'Dea Gym. Cathedral piper Tyrone Heade welcomes all to the solemn procession.

Young and old join in the procession of palms!

"The people of the Hebrews with palms before you went..."

"Our prayers and praise with anthems before you we present."

"The company of angels are praising you on high;
And mortals joined with all things created, make reply."

Meeting the Archbishop!

"The Hebrew children, carrying branches of palms in their hands, cried aloud to the Son of God:
Hosanna in the highest."

Youth servers lead the way at Noon Mass.

Holy Week has begun.
