For some, Easter is a holiday that happens on a Sunday in the spring, but for 1.2 billion Catholics around the world, the Easter season starts earlier.
People who follow the religion celebrate Holy Thursday and continue with Good Friday.
Roman Catholics gathered in churches to attend mass for 'Adoration of the Cross' Friday night. Some attended services at St. John's University Parish in Morgantown.
Other religions also follow Good Friday including Anglican and the Lutheran church.
