St. Joseph Parish to distribute Blessed Palms

From Local Sources

JASPER — St. Joseph Parish in Jasper announced that the Catholic Diocese of Evansville has authorized distribution of Blessed Palms in anticipation of Palm Sunday, with limited restrictions.

Distribution will be from 8 a.m. to 7 p.m. Saturday or until all palms are distributed, which ever is earlier. The distribution will take place in the north parking lot at the corner of Newton and West 13thsStreet. Please use the entrance near the rectory.

Long a part of many families' traditions, palms are an important reminder of the story that symbolizes Jesus' triumphal entry into Jerusalem that we celebrate on Palm Sunday.

The opportunities of Confession will also be offered Saturday starting at 11 a.m. in church. Please maintain a 6 foot distance from the person nearest you while in church. At 3:00 p.m. the church bells will toll as an invitation to pray. If you are in the area please pull into the parking lot, stay in your vehicle and unite in prayer.
