Holy Week is the name given to the week beginning on Palm Sunday and ending on Easter Sunday.
On Palm Sunday Jesus arrived in Jerusalem to crowds and cheers. His triumphant entry into Jerusalem has been celebrated on the Sunday before Easter since the first centuries of Christianity.

The crowds waved palm branches and covered his path with them. Churches remember this with crosses made from palm leaves and hold processions like the one that Jesus experienced – sometimes with a donkey, too! During this period of physical distancing due to Coronavirus, churches won’t be able to hold these processions. However, there will be a national online broadcast and many local churches are live streaming Palm Sunday services and events from their homes.

The next day the great crowd that had come to the festival heard that Jesus was coming to Jerusalem. So they took branches of palm trees and went out to meet him, shouting,
Blessed is the one who comes in the name of the Lord—
the King of Israel!”

John 12:12-13
