FLORISSANT, Mo. – A special blessing took place in Florissant Sunday morning.
Sunday is a special day for Christians. Palm Sunday marks the beginning of Holy Week which leads up to Easter, ending Lent.
Two priests at Sacred Heart Catholic Church gave a special blessing asking for God to watch over and protect them during this time.
The priests left the church at 9:50 a.m. carrying a host. They made their way through Florissant with a police escort.
People were invited to watch along the way while keeping a distance of six feet from each other. Mayor Tim Lowery approved the special event.
Sacred Heart has live streams every day through Holy Week. You can find the schedule here.
