Folding Palm Crosses

One of my favorite memories is folding palms with our church youth group.  We were raised in a large community where thousands had to be made and we were the ones to do it.  It was nice to be part of something that was going to be blessed and offered to the faithful.  It was truly an honor.

There are many different ways to make a palm cross.   You can use one strand or two.   With one strand you begin by folding it in a right angle.  With two you can make a larger cross and you have to fold the two thick ends together.

In this video I have recorded parishioners of St. Nicholas Cathedral in Tarpon Springs, FL as they fold palms for Palm Sunday.
