Procession of Palms: Antiochian Orthodox in Ottawa, Canada

The Antiochian Orthodox Church is based here in North America. You will hear parts of the liturgy in English. This particular parish has some connection to the Orthodox Diocese of Beruit as well.

It appears from this procession that the service begins in the sanctuary, where the clergy and assistants process to the altar. From there the entire congregation leaves in procession, walking around the building and entering again.
