Holding candles and singing hymns featuring the resurrection of Jesus Christ, many Christians marched to the cemetery early in the morning and also held morning prayers in churches across the city on Easter Sunday.

It is considered the most important service in the Roman Catholic Church which began shortly before Saturday midnight.

Christians paint the tomb or desk it up with flowers on the day. Some Christians also keep fast from Good Friday and break it on Easter that ends the passion week. The sermons at the church were on the resurrection of Jesus and how it gives salvation and makes mortal mankind immortal.
