3500 crosses and boutonnieres will be made this week by volunteers at St. Francis Roman Catholic Church on Ferry Street in New Haven for distribution on Palm Sunday. The annual tradition of making palm crosses in New Haven started approximately 75-years ago at the now defunct St. Donato Church on Lombard Street and then moved to St. Francis Church, according to volunteer Mary Altieri of New Haven, 99. The assembly line process includes volunteers who soak and strip the palms, braid and shape the palms, put in decorations such as ribbons and images of saints and Jesus, and finally pack them for distribution.
