On Palm Sunday a traditional ecumenical service is held in the Plaza in Santa Fe. The Roman Catholic clergy, parishioners, fraternal groups, and other interested people gather at the Cathedral Basilica of St. Francis of Assisi and then form a procession to the Plaza where they are joined by clerics and other pilgrims from the Presbyterian and Episcopal "city" parishes. Bishops from different denominations speak briefly and symbols of the Christian religion: ashes, holy water, communion hosts, and a lily plant, for example, are displayed. The palms are blessed by the Bishops, after which the Roman Catholic pilgrims process around the Plaza again and then back to the Cathedral for the 12:00 o'clock mass. It's fascinating and gratifying to see people of the three faiths gather together to commemorate an important event in the church calendar. I'll show you more photos in subsequent days.
