SALT LAKE CITY -- Utahns across the state spent Sunday morning celebrating Easter through worship and service.
Dozens of worshipers crowded churches across the state for Easter services. From the Calvary Baptist Church to the Cathedral of the Madeleine, the faithful celebrated the real meaning of the holiday.
"It represents our acts of penance, our recognition of service to our neighbor and our own personal spirituality of The Greatest: the passion death and resurrection of our Lord," said Rev. Monsignor Joseph M. Mayo, Pastor of the Cathedral of the Madeline.
Meanwhile, the Salt Lake City Mission and dozens of volunteers spent the day serving up Easter dinner to the homeless. They handed out plates of mashed potatoes, meat and beans at Pioneer Park and also distributed personal care items.
The mission says this year is especially important because more people need help. It expected to serve about 2,000 meals.
