Kolkata: Though the situation is not as bad as it was last year, when Palm Sunday was observed amid lockdown, a lot of precautions are being taken to ensure that the beginning of the Holy Week remains safe and happy for churchgoers. Both the Catholic Church and the Church of North India have made elaborate preparations for Palm Sunday. Palm Sunday marks the beginning of the Holy week leading up to Good Friday and Easter, the most important festival of the Christians. “In our Catholic churches, special services will be held following blessings and procession with palm leaves. This signifies, rejuvenation, hope and a new beginning,” said vicar general of the archdiocese of Kolkata, Dominic Gomes. A lot of restrictions have been laid out to ensure social distancing. Every church will have five to six services to ensure that not too many people gather at one time.
