Attending Sunday service is an important aspect of the Christian faith, and Palm Sunday is not exception. But sometimes circumstances don’t always allow us to attend in person. Whether you're battling a nasty cold, away from your home church, or, in more recent cases, unable to go to mass due to corona-related restrictions, there are still ways to stramm Palm Sunday services.
It’s always encouraged to check directly with your own parish to see if it will be conducting mass via YouTube Live, Zoom, or another live-streaming medium. If your parish is planning on doing so, it will likely provide a link that will direct you to the service when it starts.
If your church isn’t holding mass, you can choose from a variety of other services by heading to Catholic TV and searching for the Palm Sunday mass that's perfect for you. You can even watch previously recorded masses in case a live-stream time doesn’t work for your schedule. Christian World Media is another great alternative that provides a variety of services for all Christian groups like Baptists, Evangelicals, Catholics, and more. They post daily schedules so you can plan your day accordingly.
Another great alternative are streaming apps. Apps like Livestream, SermonCast, Boxcast, and Church Streaming are great for easy access to Church services, sermons, and readings on any electronic device or tablet. Many of them work on both Androids and iPhones. Some of these apps have subscriptions fees, so you should consider before making the investment longterm.
If for some reason, none of these options are feasible for you, you can always do your own mini-mass at home with the family. Gather the family, read some Palm Sunday Bible verses, or simply go around in a circle and talk about what you are thankful for. It might not be the traditional Palm Sunday mass, but it is still a great way to bring the family together and celebrate the holiday on your own terms since you aren't able to attend mass in person. Whatever you end up doing, it is sure to be memorable.
