Palm Sunday 2020

  • For more than 35 years, Plymouth has celebrated Palm Sunday by adopting the Central American tradition of creating las alfrombas (flower carpets) in front of the church.

  • In 2020, las alfombras in front of the church was limited due to social distancing in the year of COVID-19.

  • The tradition continued, however, as flowers were delivered to families throughout the county and they created las alfombras at their own homes, on their own sidewalks.

  • Abstract designs…

  • to fine detail with chalk and flower petals…

  • Independent work…

  • … and joint efforts!

  • Such color!

  • And thoughtful design.

  • Familiar symbols…

  • Words and images…

  • The abstract and the detailed…

  • Signs of spring…

  • And family joy at creation. Happy Palm Sunday!
