Four Evanston churches will come together at Raymond Park to host an Ecumenical Palm Sunday Processional, March 24 at 9 a.m., complete with a live donkey.

The event celebrates the entry of Jesus Christ, riding on a donkey into the city of Jerusalem in the week prior to his arrest, crucifixion, and death on Good Friday.

Rev. Michael Woolf, senior minister at Lake Street Church of Evanston, reached out to the staffs of First Congregational Church of Evanston, Immanuel Lutheran Church, and First Presbyterian Church of Evanston, and all expressed interest in taking part. This is the third year of the outdoor processional, which is organized by Lake Street Church.

Congregation members including singers and instrumentalists from the participating churches will be on hand to take part in a shared time of celebration. The event is, of course, open to the public. Following the procession, the church participants will walk to their own buildings for Palm Sunday church services.
