Updated: Apr 6, 2023

Together Sharing Christ’s Love

Welcome to:

Redeemer, Macalister

St Mark’s, Dalby

Liturgical Colour: Violet

Palm Sunday is the Christian holiday that commemorates the entry of Jesus Christ into Jerusalem a week before his crucifixion. According to the biblical account, Jesus rode into the city on a donkey while the crowds shouted "Hosanna" and laid palm branches on the ground before him. This event is significant to Christians as it represents the fulfillment of prophecy and the beginning of the Holy Week leading up to Easter. Many churches celebrate Palm Sunday by distributing palm fronds or branches to the congregation and re-enacting the procession of Jesus into Jerusalem.

LCAQD Lutheran Services Lenten appeal 2022:

Lenten Services leaflets available from the narthex.

Our focus text for the 2023 appeal is: ‘Even to your old age I am he, even when you turn grey I will carry you.' (Isaiah 46:4a)

This text reminds us of God's loving care throughout life's ups and downs. Lutheran Services is one way that we as LCAQD put our faith in God's loving care into action. Our appeal this year will support the ongoing work of Hospital Chaplaincy and Mary and Martha’s domestic violence refuge.
