Christians in Utah kick off Holy Week


SALT LAKE CITY, Utah (ABC4 Utah) – Christians all over the world are celebrating Palm Sunday today.

Services took place everywhere, including one at St. Mark’s Episcopal Cathedral in Salt Lake.

The Church rector says palms are waved because that’s what was described in the Bible when Christ came to Jerusalem.

Reverend Raymond Waldon, Dean of the Cathedral of St. Mark says, “This is the glorious entry into Jerusalem and for Christians it’s a time   that we celebrate that entry. It also marks the beginning of the week of passion for our lord.”

Reverend Waldon says this leads up to the crucifixion, the resurrection and Easter Sunday.
