Vijayawada: Christians offered special prayers at churches in the city on the occasion of Palm Sunday that begins the holy week. The week, which is spent in prayers and fasting, concludes with Easter that falls on March 31. The Sunday signifies the entry of Jesus into Jerusalem, the week before his crucifixion and resurrection. The Christians carry palm leaves symbolising the reception given to Jesus in Jerusalem those days. A They took out processions on the streets before converging at the churches for the morning prayers. At Gunadala Mother Mary's shrine, its rector, Fr. M Chinnappa, the two assistant priests, Fr. L Sridhar and Fr. P Anthony and the correspondent of Bishop Grassi High School, Fr. Joseph Vempany, celebrated the holy mass at the church.
