The day marks the end of the Apostles’ Fast In some Eastern Orthodox and Eastern Catholic churches. Congregants attend an All-Night Vigil or Vespers the night before, and a Divine Liturgy in the morning. In the General Roman calendar, it is a celebration of solemnity—a solemnity being a feast of the highest rank. It is a holy day of obligation in some parts of the Western Church, meaning Mass should be attended. This is the case in countries such as England, Scotland, and Wales, but not in the United States or Canada. It is observed in Rome, where Peter and Paul are patron saints. There the Pope leads rituals and puts a pallium—a woolen cloak—on those who became archbishops during the previous year. Other types of entertainment such as fireworks, fairs, and music also take place there on the day.
