Palm Sunday at St. Josephs Retreat Center

Reflection by: Jenny Hernandez

This past Sunday, Palm Sunday, St. Josephs Retreat center held 2 masses , one in English and one in Vietnamese, to observe Palm Sunday, each mass had a tableau reenactment of the Passion of Christ. It started with Fr. Paul Chuong Nguyen, SDB coming in with a pony just like Jesus did. Members of the community, children and adults alike participated. It was very touching to see a dad with his two children as well as a grandma and her 2 grandchildren.

There were various scenes from the Passion of Christ and the lectors read the gospel. Both choirs participated at Mass through song, music and meditation. 

What a beautiful way to start Holy Week!
