NOTE: The colour for Palm Sunday is red as we begin Holy Week, our highest holy
time. We mark this change by placing a red placemat underneath the
Lenten table centerpiece.
Light the Christ candle and the five purple candles.
Light the sixth purple candle.
Question: Why do we light this candle?
Response: We light this candle to honour Jesus, the one who comes in the
name of the Lord.
Read: Luke 19: 28-40
Reflect: Jesus comes to Jerusalem, the seat of power in Israel, in peace, riding
on a donkey. What kind of peace is Jesus offering?
Pray: Blessed are You, our servant King, who comes in the name of the
Lord! May we lay down our very lives in Your Way of peace. Amen.
Sing: Sing together a praise song for Palm Sunday, such as
All Glory, Laud and Honour.
