Christians across Southern California celebrate Easter Sunday

Christians across Southern California on Sunday celebrated Easter with many services.

In Manhattan Beach, a sunrise service was planned for 6:30 am near the pier. It was one of many services in the Southland in celebration of the holiday.

In downtown Los Angeles, the Midnight Mission was expected to hold its Easter celebration for the first time in two years. It was previously canceled due to restrictions imposed in the wake of the coronavirus.

The celebration would include a meal of herb chicken, honey-glazed ham, steamed vegetables and mashed potatoes.

Nearby, the Cathedral of Our Lady of the Angels will be able to hold its full capacity of 3,000 for Easter masses after being limited to 130 people in 2021 and closed in 2020.

The Rev. David Gallardo, pastor of the cathedral, will celebrate the Easter Sunday Mass, the Mass of the Resurrection of Our Lord, in English at 10 a.m. Archbishop José H. Gómez will celebrate the Mass in Spanish at 12:30 p.m. p.m
