Osana Perunnal (ഓശാനപ്പെരുന്നാള്‍) :

Malankara Catholic community in Kuwait traditionally celebrated Osana Perunnal (Palm Blessing, Procession & Holy Qurbono) the Triumphal Entry of Jesus Christ into Jerusalem, the week before his death and resurrection, on 12th April 2014, 6:30 pm at Holy Family Cathedral Kuwait City. Rev. Fr. Geevarghese Kaithavana offered the Osana services.

The Bible reveals that when Jesus entered Jerusalem, the crowds greeted him with waving palm branches and by covering his path with palm branches; and laid down their clothes. Crowds shouted 'Hosanna!' which means Save us Now!. Palm Sunday is the seventh and last Sunday of Lent and the beginning of Holy Week. [Matthew 21:1-11; Mark 11:1-11; Luke 19:29-38; and John 12:12-16]. Over 1000 community members attended the Osana Services.
