Sacristan Nick Ambrulavage, 17, replenishes the basket of palms at the 10:30 a.m. Mass at St. Jude Parish in Wright Township. The service signals the last week of Lent and the beginning of Holy Week. According to the Bible, people placed palms in the path of Jesus Christ as he entered Jerusalem. Jesus was later arrested and, on Good Friday, crucified. His resurrection is celebrated on Easter Sunday. In Rome, Pope Francis greeted the crowds there on Sunday. For the story see page 5A.
