In an eco-friendly gesture, St. Peter's Episcopal Church in Philadelphia's Society Hill commemorated Palm Sunday without palms, instead using dried stalks of locally grown ornamental grass, commonly called Japanese or Chinese Silver grass. The observance signifies Jesus entering Jerusalem one week prior to the resurrection.

As part of Bishop Deeley's week-long events, a visit to Houlton has been planned. At St. Pius X Catholic Church, some church members were brought to tears after mass. A special Holy Week section is also available on the Diocese of Portland website that includes listings of Masses, services, and other events at ME parishes; daily prayers and reflections; and many other resources. During Sunday's mass, parishioners held palm branches, sang, and prayed. "So starting Monday, they have celebrations every day".
