Palm Sunday is a Catholic moveable feast that falls on the Sunday before Easter. The feast commemorates Jesus’ triumphal entry into Jerusalem, an event mentioned in each of the four canonical Gospels. Palm Sunday marks the first day of Holy Week, the last week of the Catholic solemn season of Lent that precedes the arrival of Eastertide.
Ash Wednesday is a Catholic holy day of prayer and fasting. As it is the first day of Lent, many Catholics begin Ash Wednesday by marking a Lenten calendar, praying a Lenten daily devotional, and making a Lenten sacrifice that they will not partake of until the arrival of Eastertide.
