EASTER SUNDAY SERVICES

For many people, Easter mass is second only to Christmas in terms of attendance. While it varies by community, the general rule of thumb is to dress “church appropriate”. For men, that means no shorts, a nice buttoned up shirt and in some cases a jacket or even a hat. For women, nothing too short or revealing. In both instances, Easter service is also about shedding off the dull winter drab colors and spicing up your wardrobe with lots of spring-inspired color pops.
