Ready to go

Palm Sunday is the last Sunday before Easter and the final Sunday in Lent ; because it is linked with Easter it can vary in date and always falls between 15th March and 18th April. It commemorates the entry of Jesus on the donkey into Jersusalem when the crowd welcomed Him waving Palm Crosses. In church services today, Palm Crosses are given to the congregation to remember the occasion. In parishes blessed with the presence of a compliant beast (not universally common!), there may be processions to church with palms and donkey as at Corbridge, Northumberland (pictured).
