THANE: Churches in Thane began Easter celebrations on Saturday night and on Sunday, most of them saw around 4,000 to 5,000 devout Christians gathering for the morning services.

This festival is a very important one for Thaneites. Father Elias D'Souza of Our Lady of Mercy Church, Pokhran Road, says, "In our church, there was a service at 8 am and another at 9.15 am today." Ashley Misquitta, the secretary of the church says, "Easter is more significant than Christmas. It is purely religious and is a celebration of the victory of life over death. It is about the celebration of Christ's resurrection. The Easter egg depicts potential for life. It is about the rebirth of Jesus Christ, so it can be called a symbolic representation."

There are around five to six stalls put up on the Our Lady of Mercy Church premises, that will have Easter eggs and home-made goodies. A regular churchgoer and devout follower, Kasber Augustine says, "Apart from the religious ceremonies during Holy Week —the week preceding Easter Sunday — almost everyone makes Easter eggs at home. It is a huge celebration."

Father Allwyn D'Silva, the parish priest of St John the Baptist Church, says, "We had a service last night and this morning we had special masses at 6, 7, 8 and 9.15 am. Families in Thane will be blessing their homes with Holy Water today afternoon."

Youngsters are organizing a treasure hunt, which they have called the Easter Egg hunt, post the service. Says Father D'Silva, "There will be a sale of goodies and souvenirs in the premises and the proceeds will go to home for the aged. And on Friday, April 25, there will be a musical event to collect money for the same."
