Holy Week has begun, and together as the faith community of Sint-Kwinten we celebrated the Entrance of Jesus into Jerusalem.
We accompanied Jesus with our palm branches and Hosannas and went in procession around the church.
“Jesus enters the city on a donkey to make it clear that we, his followers, are called to bear each other’s burdens in life. The true king is a shepherd for his people, and peace will only reign on earth if we dare to follow in his footsteps. Yes, blessed is he who comes with the name of the Living One.”
Following the Eucharistic celebration, we hosted outside the main church door our annual ‘Koffiestop’ solidarity event in support of the project of Broederlijk Delen in Guatemala. Many lingered to enjoy a cup of hot coffee and a delicious bakery item.
