Amongst all the chaos of parties during the Easter festivities on Ambergris Caye there is also the religious celebrations that take place. The San Pedro Roman Catholic Church is responsible for conducting a Lenten Schedule every year.
Palm Sunday was observed on Sunday, April 13, 2014, where the Blessing of the Palms took place. Church goers gathered at 7:00a.m. at the corner of Barrier Reef Drive and Tarpon Street for the blessing of the palms by the San Pedro Roman Catholic School. A short reenactment of Jesus’ entrance to Jerusalem was conducted by the priest of the San Pedro RC Church and his disciples all the way to church at the center of town. Mass was then carried out at 8:00 a.m.
