Lazarus Saturday, and the Vigil for the Feast
Lazarus Saturday began with the Divine Liturgy for that Feast, which was followed by a communal parish cleaning of the church, and a choir practice. In the evening, palm fronds and pussy willow branches were blessed in the Vigil for Palm Sunday and shared with the faithful.
The Divine Liturgy and Procession
The celebration of the Feast continued on Sunday morning with the Divine Liturgy, and a procession with "the children with palms (and pussy willows) of victory...," held inside because of the rain. We have a short video, below:
