Deacon Virgil Lochtefeld of the Coldwater cluster of Catholic parishes separates strands of palms in preparation for Palm Sunday this weekend. The observance recognizes Jesus' triumphant entry into Jerusalem one week before he died on the cross and was resurrected into heaven. Palm Sunday signifies the end of Lent and the beginning of Holy Week.
