The Brooklyn Diocese Unites the Faithful this Easter via TV and online Masses
in Seven Languages to celebrate the Resurrection of Jesus Christ
Today, Holy Saturday, the Church commemorates the time Jesus spent in the tomb. Then, after sunset, Easter Vigil Services throughout Brooklyn and Queens will celebrate the Resurrection of Jesus Christ. With the challenges presented by the coronavirus pandemic, forcing our churches to be closed this Easter, the Diocese of Brooklyn has embraced the challenge to keep us all connected during these holy days.
