HYDERABAD: April 21, 2019. Like other parts of the globe, Christians celebrated Easter with religious fervour and zeal here on Sunday.

The day was observed with solemnity and prayers with special sermons on salvation. Various churches organised special programmes like sunrise service, Easter Sunday sermons, and choirs to mark the day.

In Hyderabad, the main ceremony was held at Diocese Church of Pakistan where sunrise service was held and the sermon was delivered while special prayers were also offered.

After sunrise service, Christians took a round of the church while having lit candles in their hands. Special prayers were also offered for peace, prosperity and solidarity for the country. The government made special security arrangements around all churches across the province including Churches in Hyderabad city.

Easter Sunday is the most well-attended Sunday service of the year for Christian churches, as the Christians hold prayers and special ceremonies to mark the Easter week.

According to Christians, Jesus Christ rose from the dead on the third day after his crucifixion. His resurrection is celebrated on Easter Day, also called Resurrection Day.

One of the main attractions of this festival is the gift of Easter Eggs, made of chocolates, given especially to children.
