Holy Week Begins With A Procession Of Children At Mother Bethel AME
By Justin Udo
PHILADELPHIA (CBS) – Holy Week is the most important week on the Christian calendar and it starts with Palm Sunday.
At the Mother Bethel African Methodist Episcopal church in South Philadelphia, Holy Week began with a palm procession led by children.
For this congregant, it is a reminder of what Jesus Christ endured for his followers.
“The scriptures that are read re-tell the story each time and each time it touches me and brings me to tears to think about how one man could take so much to save our souls.”
After the sermon the congregation received palms that they waved and kept as a token of remembrance.
