Palm Sunday Celebration at St. Nicholas Orthodox Church Bethlehem - 04/09/23

On Lazarus Saturday, April 08, the pussy willows and palms were blessed by Fr. Nikolai at Evening Vespers.
Then, on Palm Sunday, April 09 before Divine Liturgy, the willows and palms were distributed to the faithful of the parish. Many parishioners choose to hold the willows and palms throughout the service.
As we start Holy Week, we wait with great anticipation, the Resurrection of Jesus Christ, Our Lord and Savior.
