Palm Sunday - 2024

On April 28th, St. George celebrated Palm Sunday, which marks the Entrance of the Lord into Jerusalem. After Divine Liturgy, there was a procession of palms lead by the youth and children of the parish. The blessing of the palms and branches followed with parishioners holding their branches high. This year, due to difficulty acquiring pussy willow branches, a mix of boxwood branches and palm fronds were bundled for blessing.  Palm crosses were made by the Church School and handed out during the dismissal. Thanks to Anna Bouteneff, Fr. Sergei, Cathy Hotova, and Sue & Joe Galich for assembling the boxwood branches and palm fronds on Lazarus Saturday. Below are several few photos.
