Feast Day: April 21, 2019

Palm Sunday is one of the Great Feasts of the Greek Orthodox Church. Always the Sunday before Easter (Pascha / Πάσχα,) it is also called the Triumphal Entry, and celebrates the entry of Jesus into Jerusalem, the week before his death and in the days before the Jewish Passover. Crowds greeted him by waving palm branches and covering his path with them.

The icon depicts Jesus riding a donkey and surrounded by the people of Jerusalem.
