Ridgewood NJ, Cardinal Tobin, Archbishop of Newark, was the main celebrant at the 12:30PM Palm Sunday procession and Mass today.

Cardinal Tobin presided at 12:30 p.m. Palm Sunday Mass at Our Lady of Mount Carmel Church in Ridgewood. Palm Sunday commemorates Jesus’ triumphant arrival in Jerusalem. During Mass, Catholics will hear the Gospel account of the Passion and Crucifixion of Jesus. Blessed palm fronds representing the palm branches the crowds scattered in front of Christ as he rode into the city will be distributed.

The Archdiocese of Newark announced recently that Cardinal Tobin has restored the practice of offering consecrated wine, or the Blood of Christ, during the celebration of Mass in the Archdiocese beginning on Holy Thursday, April 6.  The practice had been on hiatus since 2020 due to COVID-19 concerns and safety restrictions, and only priests have been permitted to receive Communion from the cup during Mass over the past three years. The directive also calls for the Archdiocese to foster a renewed fullness in liturgical celebrations and to discontinue remaining pandemic restrictions or accommodations.
