Make a Palm Cross
With Palm Sunday coming soon we’re inviting everyone to make a Palm Cross and display it in a front window or on your front door.
We want to be able to share these in an online gallery. So once your artwork is complete, please take a photo and post it here. (you’ll see a link at the top of the Gallery.
You could come up with your own design, or you could use these instructions.
Well that might seem all rather too difficult!
There is an easier alternative, (just please no scissor-related accidents)
Another Idea altogether…
What if everyone on Sunday April 5 in the morning, puts a branch on the door of their house or on the window, to celebrate Palm Sunday?
It could be any green branch you can get. This would help, despite the social distancing, to be connected as we enter into the Holiest of Weeks.
Want to join?
We may be physically isolated, but not separated. We are united as the body of Christ.
We are the Church.
A Palm Cross from 1940
This isn’t the first time British people have had to take a new approach to palm crosses.
This palm cross was issued to parishioners in 1940 when the usual supply was unavailable.
John Huckle from St George’s has a collection of his mother’s palm crosses covering many years and shares this one with us which was given to his mother in her parish in Leeds during WW11.
