The Palm Sunday Walk is making a comeback

In response to popular demand, the Palm Sunday Walk is making a comeback this year, organized by Mission Jeunesse MTL!

After a break in 2019 due to the pandemic and Pope Francis’ move of the diocesan World Youth Day (WYD) to Christ the King, this much-loved tradition is back in full force.

Young people, proudly wearing their Palm branches, will march through the streets to conclude this memorable event at the Cathedral during the Saturday Palm Sunday mass, led by young people and dedicated to youth.

This event, on March 23rd, will mark the start of Holy Week, highlighting Jesus’ triumphal entry into Jerusalem and anticipating the crucial moments of the Passion leading up to Good Friday.
