Palm Sunday

     We celebrated Palm Sunday this week with folded palms being given to parishioners during Sunday morning service.

Palm Sunday Prayer
     Christ Jesus, we commend ourselves to your care this day.  Inspire in us the trust that nothing in life or death can separate us from you.  Amen.
     Lay Reader Jan Cox told us the story, and showed us photos, of a miniature donkey she once owned and about the legend of the cross which marks its' back.  When Jesus came in to the city of Jerusalem he rode in on the back of a small donkey.  In thanks, he blessed the donkey by making the sign of the cross across its' back.  To this day these donkeys still bear the cross on their back.
     Here's a little video someone posted online...
