Blessed Palms

Posted : Jan-29-2024

We invite you to bring your Blessed Palms to the church by Sunday February 11th ,2024 to help make ashes for Ash Wednesday.

You may place the Palms in the basket found at the back counter of the church. Thank you!

"Because the palm branches used for Palm Sunday have been blessed by a priest, they are now sacramentals. Parishioners can return their palms to the church or take them home and keep them for a year. Sacramentals must be treated with great respect, and these palms are never to be thrown away. The blessed palms can be given back to the church to be burned for Ash Wednesday, or they can be returned to nature by burying or burning them with the ashes spread outside."
