Today Christians around the world celebrate Palm Sunday, marking the beginning of the Holy Week leading up to Easter Sunday.
- Today, Christians around the world will celebrate Palm Sunday. The feast day marks the beginning of the Christian Holy Week leading up to Easter Sunday. This video from Palm Sunday one year ago, when the pandemic forced many local services online. This year, the Archdiocese of New York says parishioners will have the option to observe virtually or in-person. In-person mass will be held at St. Patrick's Cathedral today, where those in attendance can receive palms, either by picking it up themselves or from an usher wearing gloves. Palms were not distributed last year.
