Photo Story – Palm Sunday in Syria

Reading Time: < 1 minute

Christians celebrate Palm Sunday during a mass held at Lady of Damascus church in the mostly Christian-populated al-Qassaa neighborhood in Damascus, Syria, on 28 March 2021. Catholics mark Palm Sunday to begin the traditional observance of Holy Week. The traditional Palm Sunday rites are done to recall the arrival of Jesus Christ in Jerusalem, where he was welcomed by a crowd waving palm branches.
