A Different Kind of Holy Week


This year I made a commitment to not darken the door of a church for Holy Week. I almost managed it.

Palm Sunday kicked off the week as I was joined by Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence and Franciscan brothers for our fourth annual Palm Sunday procession through the Castro. This year we handed out 500 palms in bars, on the sidewalks and in local businesses. Cars stopped for us and drivers asked for palms. Very often we heard "oh, yeah. I forgot it was Palm Sunday".
