Palm Sunday Procession



The Knights of Columbus were part of the group that observed the day and processed from the Cathedral Basilica of St. Francis of Assisi to the Plaza on Palm Sunday. See a full explanation of the procession, here. The man on the right is a retired Episcopal cleric who helped distribute the blessed palms to the crowd.

The palms ready to be distributed with members of the Episcopal choir behind the table.

  2. Ceremonial robes are so colourful and always make wonderful photographic subjects. It looks as though it was a fine sunny day - that always helps :-)

  4. Looks like all of that must have taken a lot of planning. Must have been a neat event to attend. Hope they didn't get hot with those hats on though!

  5. With this amount of ceremony for Palm Sunday, I am sure Easter Sunday will be memorable.

  8. I like the uniforms of the Knights, but the former cleric is much more at ease. Beautiful images of a truly felt procession.
