The Great Week, Holy Week has begun. At St Clare's the principal Mass on Palm Sunday began, as the liturgy suggests, with a Service of the Blessing of Palms, outside the church.
A good number of the congregation foregathered near to the Parish Hall. As the clergy and servers approach all sang: Ride on, ride on in majesty. The introduction and blessing was given and the Gospel of the Entry into Jerusalem was proclaimed. The all formed up and processed back into the church for the liturgy of the Passion and Holy Mass.
