BROOKLYN - Many in Brooklyn celebrated Easter Sunday in the company of family and loved ones.

Faithful people from around the borough congregated at their respective churches, including St. Michael's Catholic Church in Sunset Park.

The 10 a.m. Mass was so packed that many of the 900 worshipers were forced to stand along the aisles to watch.

Father Sweeney says Easter is a solemn recognition that Jesus Christ died on cross and that people should find a joyful hope in knowing that he was raised from the dead three days later.

In Williamsburg, Fortunato Brothers bakery had its own celebration and raffled off a 189-pound chocolate Easter egg.
