Order Lenten Palm Crosses Online Today!

Lent is a time of grace. As Catholic Christians we believe that when Jesus died on the cross for us, he opened the gates of heaven that we may enter into eternal salvation when we die on this Earth.  Lent is a time to walk in Jesus' footsteps for the 40 days prior to his public ministry and to celebrate his passion, death on the cross and resurrection for us. It is a time to recognize those that have gone before us following the example of Jesus Christ, Our Lord.
  
To commemorate this time of Lent, we are offering palm crosses for sale to be placed on your loved one's grave between March 2 and April 15. Order your palm crosses today through our secure website by clicking on the link below.
