Feast
Date & Time 5th Apr, 2020

This annual feast falls on the Sunday before Easter and honours the triumphant entry of Jesus into Jerusalem in the days before his Passion, an event described in the Gospels.
 
All the parishes in Malta and Gozo on Palm Sunday bless the palm leaves and the olive leaves, some even have parades. The parishes that have the statues of Good Friday bless the olive tree they put on the statues of "Jesus prays in the Olive Garden" and the "Betrayal of Judas”. Many of the Maltese take a small olive branch to their homes.
