Christians believe that Jesus Christ has risen from the dead and is alive! This has been cause for celebration since the early days of Christianity – from celebrating masses, Great Feasts of the church to gatherings in the spirit of faith. Christians have been celebrating such events with light and music, processions and prayers – and the numerous customs that have been handed-down have contributed to those colourful events. Pilgrims and visitors from around the world are cordially invited to join in the celebrations!
