Our Easter morning tradition for the last ten years or so is to rise about 5 AM and drive to Mt. Echo Park to attend the sunrise Mass, celebrated on the hill overlooking the city.People begin gathering well before sunrise, despite what the weather may bring.
Yesterday was one of the best, weather wise. Cold but not freezing, with a forecast for a beautiful afternoon.
We gather with friends we have known through our children's elementary school. The youngest in the group are now in high school!
The Mass begins as the sun rises over the city.
It is a truly inspiring way to celebrate this wondrous Holiday.
Voices ring out to announce Christ's rising.
The sun peeks over the horizon.
We celebrate the true meaning of Easter Sunday.
The start of a gorgeous day.
Friends who have grown up together. Sadie and Kevin trying to stay warm.
Home to celebrate the day with family. I hope your Easter was lovely.
Have a peaceful Monday, P.
