For those who wish to receive their blessed palms now, rather than later, the priests of St. Patrick Parish will distribute the blessed palms on Palm Sunday morning April 5, from 9:00 am to 12:00 noon . However, please take note of the strict directions which must be followed for the safety of our parishioners as well as our priests. Palms will be distributed by the priests who will be wearing gloves.
Cars may enter only through the most north Adams Street driveway between “Ye Old Garage” and the Parish Hall (not into the main church entrance). Cars are asked to form two lines. You will receive the palms as you drive through. Simply open the driver’s side window and the priest will hand you some palms. Do not come on foot or get out of your car. You will not be allowed to park in the parking lot. Cars will exit onto Pio Pico Drive only. We have plenty of palms. There is no need to get here early. We will not run out. We would not want everybody to come at the same time.
These procedures need to be carefully followed in order to ensure the safety of everyone and good order on the streets surrounding the church. Thank you for carefully abiding by these directions.
