Palm Sunday 2015 - Your Photos

Every year, our photographs of Palm Sunday ceremonies show a mix of violet and red vestments, the two colors used between the Ordinary and Extraordinary Forms of the Roman Rite. This year, I decided to start off with a new color, green, which is used by many Slavic Byzantine churches. Our thanks to all those who sent in photographs for this post - we will be very happy to add any late submissions over the next few days. Don’t forget to send in pictures of your Triduum and Easter liturgies as well! (This post has been updated with two new contributions.)
