COLUMBIA — Congregations gathered together to observe Palm Sunday. The holy day is observed one week before Easter Sunday. Patrons at Sacred Heart Church received palm branches to hold during Mass in remembrance of Jesus' entrance to the city of Jerusalem. The palm branches, some folded like crosses, were blessed during the Mass.
