The Great Week is of course Holy Week. Today in parishes across the world the triumphal entry of Christ into Jerusalem is recalled.
Here, at St Clare's, this part of the liturgy was held in the open air, outside the parish hall. The parishioners assembled and were joined by the clergy and servers. Palm branches were blest and the Gospel of the Entry into Jerusalem was proclaimed and then all processed back into the church. Here the Passion of St Luke was read and scene is set for the Triduum.
