Easter Sunday Draws Thousands to St. Patrick's

Resurrection refers to the literal coming back to life of the biologically dead. It is used both with respect to the particular individuals or the belief in a General Resurrection of the dead at the end of the world. The General Resurrection is featured prominently in Jewish, Christian, and Muslim scriptures. The death and resurrection of Jesus is the central focus of Christianity.

Thousands have gathered for Easter services at the Saint Patrick's Cathedral to commemorate the resurrection of Jesus Christ.

With a seating capacity of 2,500, each Mass today has been full.

Archbishop Timothy Dolan officiates the 10:15 a.m. Mass, which worshipers are required to have tickets to attend.

Ticket-holders actually stand in line about an hour prior to the service starts before they can enter the cathedral.

Easter is a celebration of the resurrection of Jesus Christ. There are several masses at St. Patrick's today, including one in Spanish at 4 p.m.

The 5:30 p.m. Mass is the last one this Easter Sunday. Coinciding with church services, the Easter Parade takes place on 5th Avenue, starting at 10 a.m. until about 4 p.m. Anyone can march in it.

The parade has become tradition for parade-goers to show off their Easter bonnets. Many are handmade and homemade.
