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 Sunday, March 20th of 2016, Fr. Awraha Mansoor celebrated Holy Mass in commemoration of Palm Sunday. He began with blessing Olive branches, thereafter the procession continued back into the Church. Fr. Awraha, in his sermon, elaborated on the importance of our sincere prayers to our Lord, Jesus Christ, with a repentant heart and as a result of true faith in Him so to receive what we pray for.

Following the Holy Mass, the parishioners of Saint Matthew Parish went to the Parish Hall to share a meal together that was prepared by Daughters of Mary Ministry as part of their Spring Bazzar. Following are few photos of this day. See Full Gallery at our Parish’s website.
