Palm Sunday at St. Matthew

Palm Sunday Celebration at St. Matthew Catholic Church, Ceres-Ca

“The crowds preceding him and those following kept crying out and saying: Hosanna to the Son of David; blessed is he who comes in the name of the Lord; hosanna in the highest.” Matthew 21:9

On April 13th, 2014, the faithful gathered at St Matthew Parish to celebrate Palm Sunday. The celebration began with the blessing of Palms by our Pastor, Fr. Awraha Mansoor, and was followed by a procession into the Parish to celebrate the Holy Mass. In his sermon, Fr. Awraha reflected on the Gospel readings for Palm Sunday; he elaborated on several great points from which we can learn many good lessons; and he emphasized on the importance of relying on our Lord in our lives and not on ourselves or others. Following the Mass we went to the Parish hall where Daughters of Mary Ministry of our Parish held their beautiful annual Spring Bazaar once again.

Following are few pictures of this celebration. You may see Full Gallery on our Parish Website at:
