At sunrise to be more precise here at Oak Street Beach.

Dozens of people bundled up for a service and communion organized by Fourth Presbyterian Church.

The pews were also packed at Holy Name Cathedral.

The church opened up its auditorium to accommodate overflow crowds for some of the early Easter services.
