St Joseph's

Palm Sunday marks beginning of Holy Week

Palm Sunday is the final Sunday of Lent that commemorates the arrival of Christ in Jerusalem, days before he was crucified.

In Port Moresby, St Joseph parishioners did a reenactment of the Gospels of Jesus entering Jerusalem before his death.

Palm Sunday is known as such because the faithful will often receive palm fronds which they use to participate in the reenactment of Christ's arrival in Jerusalem.

Main celebrant, Fr John Auram, during his homily, said Palm Sunday is a time to reflect on our lives as Christians.
