Palm Sunday 2009

Like last year and years past, members of Emmanuel Episcopal Church joined with other local congregations in a Palm Sunday procession through the streets of downtown Staunton. This year's observance of Holy Week -- memorializing the arrival of Jesus Christ in Jerusalem, the Last Supper, his betrayal, crucifixion, and resurrection -- was blessed with mild, sunny conditions. We began at Trinity Episcopal church, marched down Beverley Street, and concluded with songs and prayers at St. Francis of Assisi Catholic church, before returning to our respective churches.
