Palm Sunday Syro-Malabar Style
It being the last Saturday of the month, the Syro Malabar community have their monthly Holy Qurbana (Mass) in the Syro Malabar Rite. The Mass included the traditional Palm Sunday procession with children singing 'Hosanna'.
The children prepare for the procession.
Clearly enjoying themselves...
As in the pre-1962 Latin rite Mass, the priest knocks three times on the church door.
The door is opened.
The congregation waiting to follow the priest into the Church.
Mass continues with the Offertory.
