The Mass began with the reading of the Gospel account of Jesus' triumphant entry into Jerusalem, when the crowds greeted him with palms and spread their cloaks before Him as he rode a donkey into the city.
Palms were then blessed. Fr. Decroix who joined us helped in the blessing of the Palms.
The people then made their way back into the Church singing hymns of praise to the Son of David and Hosanna to the King.
We had a full complement of servers, which was a good thing.
Because it was World Youth Day, the choir, readers and ushers were all young people from my confirmation class this year. I thought they did a good job, with the music and the singing and in the reading as well, so kudos to them.
