Palm Sunday at St. Luke's church

More than 400 people gathered at CSI St. Luke’s Church, Mandaveli to celebrate Palm Sunday on Mar 29. It is believed that on this holy day, Jesus rode a donkey into Jerusalem and the people sang songs and laid down their cloaks and small branches of trees in front of him.

A procession was held from Mandaveli market to the church with people dressed in colourful costumes and the entire scene was re-enacted much to the delight of the worshippers. The members of the procession also carried palm leaves in the form of a cross and sang songs in praise of the Lord. The celebrations ended with a Mass after which refreshments were served.
