MINNEAPOLIS (AP) — As new Incarnation volunteers flocked to the Church, Reynaldo Hidalgo plucked new palm fronds to be woven into elaborate designs that will be blessed at services on Palm Sunday; the beginning of the most holy sabbath in Christianity.
“It’s thanks to the king, our Lord Jesus Christ,” said Hidalgo, who has been running a Mexican palm weaving factory here for half a dozen years with his wife. “We wanted to preserve the memory of this tradition.”
