WATERBURY, Conn. (WTNH) — Get a fresh start to your Easter Sunday with a sunrise Mass at Holy Land USA.
The gates opened at 5 a.m., and Mass started at 6:15 a.m. Storm Team 8 said sunrise will be at 6:29 a.m. Easter morning.
Attendees were asked to bring folding chairs to sit in and to dress accordingly for the outdoor Mass. Masks were required and social distancing was used.
One woman we spoke with says this was a special experience: “It’s moving, being gathered by so many people on this special day,” said Annemarie Guerrier of Middlebury. “Seeing the sunrise, and everybody is lifting their spiritual soul to serve God…Being gathered — and it’s a sign of hope, that yes, in darkness, there is light.”
She says she’s grateful for the community that came out for Sunday morning’s sunrise mass.
