Churches to mark Maundy Thursday, Good Friday and Easter with different services in many ways
Members of St. Michael Catholic Church perform the Stations of the Cross on Good Friday morning in 2016 to hundreds visiting at Laurel Park. The church has used Laurel Park as the site for the performance since 2004 with rehearsals every Saturday and Sunday for three months.
Palm Sunday is less than 24 hours. It signifies two things for members of the Christian faith: It commemorates Jesus Christ’s triumphant arrival in Jerusalem, and it marks the beginning of Holy Week, or the remembrance of the son of God’s final days on earth. Many churches will celebrate Palm Sunday inside their own sanctuaries or facilities by waving palm branches in the air.
