This year’s Easter season falls during the coronavirus pandemic when state and local governments are prohibiting social gatherings.

However, places of worship are defined as an essential service, according to the Texas attorney general, which has offered guidelines for how members of the faith community can continue to attend religious services during COVID-19 and social distancing mandates. These guidelines are available to read at the bottom of this article.

Here are how some local churches are adapting their services so Katy-area residents can celebrate the holy holiday.
