Palm Sunday Drive-Thru
Like some other churches in the area, Our Lady of the Lake handed out palms on Palm Sunday, April 5th. Four staff members facilitated the palms pick up maintaining car distancing and placing palms in the trunk or back seat. The staff had masks and gloves as well. More than 220 cars came through in a show of support with a nod to the tradition of having palms in the house despite the solitary circumstances.
It added some sweetness to the bitter reality of staying apart together. One parishioner wrote "Thanks for giving of your time and braving the cold...to make sure we were able to get palms. In this crazy time, it was nice to be able to keep one tradition".
