On Palm Sunday, March 24, parishioners from Christ the King Episcopal Church met at the 509 Community Church at 509 E. State St. for singing, Scripture reading and blessing of the palms. Sixty parishioners from both churches took part in a procession up to Christ the King worship, that included celebration of the Eucharist and a dramatic reading of the passion story from the Gospel according to St. Luke. This is the first time for either church to have a combined service and procession on Palm Sunday.
