The Very Rev. Steven L. Thomason, left, and the Right Rev. Gregory H. Rickel, bow to an empty sanctuary as they begin a live streamed Easter service at Saint Mark's Episcopal Cathedral Sunday, April 12, 2020, in Seattle.

With crowds prohibited from gathering, churches and other religious institutions have had to connect virtually. This past weekend marked Easter Sunday, the holiest of Christian holidays. KNKX reporter Paula Wissel "attended" online services and brings us an audio postcard. The services include St. Brendan’s Spanish Mass in Bothell, New Beginnings Christian Fellowship in Kent, St. James Cathedral in Seattle and Our Savior Lutheran Church in Tacoma.
