Downeast Maine Ushers in Holy Week

By Will Tuell

As winter gives way to spring -- at least on paper -- Downeasters are preparing to celebrate Holy Week, the time of year when Christians around the world mark the final moments of Christ’s life, as well as his crucifixion and resurrection. While many churches will hold special services commemorating the events leading up to Easter or Resurrection Sunday, community groups around the county are offering a range of secular activities such as Easter egg hunts, basket raffles, and such that the community can also participate in.
