Palm Sunday

Scroll to explore

Palm Sunday is the first day of Holy Week and the Sunday before Easter Day. On this day we commemorate Jesus’ triumphant entry into Jerusalem.

 

10.30am: Procession and Eucharist for Palm Sunday

The service will begin outside the Minster on the South Piazza when a procession led by a donkey leads the congregation into the cathedral via the West End. The Eucharist will include the Passion Gospel, sung by the Choir of York Minster, and the blessing of palm crosses, as a reminder of Jesus’ entry into Jerusalem, and what would come afterwards. This service turns from triumph to sorrow, marking the beginning of Jesus’ journey towards the cross.

The sermon will be delivered by Rhidian Brook, the Holy Week Preacher.

 

4pm: Choral Evensong

A service of Choral Evensong which prepares us for our walk with Christ through Holy Week.

 

7.30pm: Stainer’s Crucifixion

The Ebor Singers, an associate choir of York Minster, will perform John Stainer’s Crucifixion. The work incorporates congregational hymns with a recounting of the passion of Christ.
