Catholics observe Palm Sunday during Luzon lockdown

Fr. Gilbert Villena, parish priest of the San Isidro Labrador Parish, leads the blessing of palm fronds to celebrate Palm Sunday at Bagong Silangan in Quezon City. The parish asked its devotees not to go to church as its leaders will instead go around the community for the blessing, in compliance with government instructions for the public to observe physical distancing to combat the COVID-19 pandemic.
