Lori Loughlin and her designer husband Mossimo Giannulli hired Gucci loafers in front of the church on Sunday – just one day before pleading guilty in college bribery.
The couple were spotted leaving the Good Shepherd's church in Beverly Hills after a Mass on Palm Sunday.
A fellow churchgoer told The Blast that Loughlin and Giannulli led a procession through the church on Sunday, which is an integral part of the Palm Sunday service held a week before Easter.
When the service ended, Loughlin and Giannulli – both wearing Gucci shoes – were spotted with a smile as they left the church with what looked like a palm.

The Full House actress opted for navy pants and a light blue blouse, while her designer husband wore short black pants and a shirt with black buttons.
The couple's two daughters, Olivia Jade, 19, and Isabella, 20, did not attend the church service.
Their appearance in the church came just one day before it was revealed that Loughlin and Giannulli were not guilty of allegations that they had paid $ 500,000 in bribes to get their daughters to the University of Southern California.
They belong to 50 prominent parents, sports coaches and others accused of the far-reaching admission to college bribery scams that the elite school has embroiled throughout the country.
Loughlin and Giannulli filed court documents on Monday that waive their right to appear before an indictment and do not plead guilty for the two charges against them. The judge granted their requests, which means that they do not have to appear before the Boston Federal Court to be charged.

Loughlin and Giannulli are accused of paying $ 500,000 in bribes to get their daughters – Olivia (left) and Isabella (right) – into USC while team teams recruit, although neither can row
Their charges of money laundering and bank fraud carry a fine of up to 40 years in prison.
They had already been accused of mail and mail fraud, but federal prosecutors added money laundering to the list of accusations against them last week, increasing the pressure on them to admit guilt.
Loughlin, her husband and 19 other parents who have not yet declared guilty of the plan were hit with the extra costs.
The day before, 13 other parents – including actress Felicity Huffman – pleaded guilty for a conspiracy indictment to commit mail fraud and email fraud for fair services.
Loughlin and Giannulli are accused of paying bribes to have their daughters designated as crew travelers for USC, although neither is a rower. The authorities say that Loughlin and Giannulli helped create false athletic profiles for the teenagers by sending Singer photos of their teenagers on rowing machines.
After their older daughter was admitted to the USC, the authorities say that Giannulli, whose Mossimo clothing was until recently a Target brand, sent Singer an email with the subject line & # 39; Trojan happiness & # 39 ;, thanked him for his & # 39; efforts and end result! & # 39;
Loughlin and Giannulli appeared briefly in the Boston Federal Court on April 3. Their charges of money laundering and bank fraud carry a sentence of up to 40 years in prison

Their daughter, Olivia Jade – a star on social media with a popular YouTube channel – has been omitted from deals with cosmetics trader Sephora and hair products company TRESemme after her parents' arrest.
Loughlin and Giannulli did not address the charges against them publicly.
Parents accused in the case are accused of paying an admission consultant, Rick Singer, to take their children's entrance exams for school and have their children admitted as sports travelers at schools, including Georgetown and Yale.
It is the largest such scheme ever prosecuted by the Ministry of Justice.
Huffman, the 56-year-old Emmy winner who was staring at Desperate Housewives, was charged with paying $ 15,000 disguised as a charitable donation to have a proctor correct her daughter's SAT responses.
Prosecutors say they will seek a prison sentence for Huffman that is between four and ten months at the end of the intervening period, after she agrees to be guilty.
In her first public comments since her arrest, Huffman took responsibility for her actions on Monday and said she would accept the consequences.
& # 39; My daughter knew absolutely nothing about my actions, and in my misguided and profoundly wrong way, I betrayed her. I will bear this violation against her and the public for the rest of my life, & she said after her plea agreement was announced.
& # 39; My desire to help my daughter is not an excuse to break the law or to be unfair. & # 39;
It is not clear whether the daughters of Loughlin were aware of the alleged interference of their parents.
