Palm Sunday on Sanibel

On Palm Sunday Christians celebrate the Triumphal Entry of Jesus Christ into Jerusalem, the week before his death and resurrection. Palm Sunday marks the beginning of Holy Week, which concludes on Easter Sunday.

The Bible reveals that when Jesus entered Jerusalem, the crowds greeted him with waving palm branches, and by covering his path with palm branches. Immediately following this great time of celebration in the ministry of Jesus, he begins his journey to the cross.

Celebrate Palm Sunday at one of the many churches on Sanibel and Captiva Islands: Chapel By The Sea, Captiva; St. Isabel Catholic Church; Sanibel Community Church; Sanibel Congregational United Church of Christ; and St. Michael’s Episcopal Church.
