While we sing and wave our palm branches, we ask the choir, young people

*PRAYER OF INVOCATION AND LORD’S PRAYER:
Our Father who art in heaven, hallowed be thy name, Thy kingdom come. Thy will
be done on earth, as it is in heaven. Give us this day our daily bread. And forgive us
our debts, as we forgive our debtors. And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us
from evil; for thine is the kingdom, and the power, and the glory, forever. Amen.
Glory be to the Father, and to the Son, and to the Holy Ghost, as it was in the beginning,
is now and ever shall be world without end.
