How to stream Easter services from around the world

Updated April 10, 2020 - 8:57 am

Social distancing measures couldn’t have come at a worse time for the faithful.

With most of the world unable to congregate in person this Easter, churches have taken to streaming their services to provide an opportunity to worship and sense of comfort.

Here’s a look at how you can watch some prominent Easter services from around the world from the safety and comfort of your home. (All times are Pacific.)
