THE All Saints’ Anglican Church of Bull Creek-Leeming will continue its Palm Sunday Procession tradition on March 25.

Members of the church have walked from Brockman Park in Bull Creek back to the chapel at All Saints’ College annually since 2014.

With the procession featuring donkeys, Reverend Bruce Hyde said it attracts quite a bit of interest from locals.

“The procession is an opportunity for Christians to relive the moment when Jesus entered Jerusalem on the week prior to his crucifixion, and to offer acts of praise and worship to Christ the King” he said.

“Jesus came into Jerusalem riding on the back of a donkey and his followers welcomed him with great acclamation waving palm branches and lying their cloaks on the road.

“Palm Sunday, also known as Passion Sunday, marks the beginning of Holy Week, and on this day the scene is set for the unfolding of this climactic event in Jesus’ life, as God’s salvation for all the world unfolds.”

A sausage sizzle will be held after the service, with a magician providing entertainment and the donkeys sticking around to pet.

The parish will meet at Brockman Park at 8.30am.
