2017 Crystal Shrine Grotto Easter Sunrise Service

If you’re looking for a different way to celebrate Easter this year you should check out the Easter Sunrise Service at Memorial Park, next to the Crystal Shrine Grotto.  My family went and had a great experience.  It was a little chilly, but so nice to be outside with such beautiful surroundings.  And the donuts were good too.


The service starts at 7am, which isn’t too early for my crew.  They had juice, coffee and donuts, and lots of happy people.  There are plenty of chairs available, and bathrooms too.061 062

It was a traditional church service.  I don’t recall how long it lasted but my kids did fine.  Towards the end they released doves from a basket under the cross.  They bring in a lot of flowers and an altar, and there are musicians as well.  After the service you can walk through the Grotto.  It’s really a beautiful way to spend Easter morning.
