Archbishop Jose H. Gomez to hold Palm Sunday ceremony

Palm Sunday Mass starts at 10 a.m. in downtown

Archbishop Jose H. Gomez will hold Palm Sunday Mass at 10 a.m. at the Cathedral of Our Lady of the Angels.

The Mass will begin on the plaza with a blessing of palm branches. The palms, which represent the palms the crowd brought when Jesus rode into Jerusalem, will then be carried by the faithful as they process into the cathedral. This has been a Christian tradition since the 4th century CE.

There will be additional Masses at 8 a.m. and 12:30 p.m. The afternoon service will be in Spanish.

Parking will be free until 3 p.m. but all vehicles must enter through the Hill Street entrance.
