Across the city on Good Friday, Christians came together to reflect and commemorate the death of Jesus on the cross.
The Stations of the Cross service at Saint Michael's Cathedral saw a crowd kneel and say prayers at each of the 14 stations, which represent incidents during Jesus' progress from his condemnation to his crucifixion and burial.
Catholic priest Father Paddy Sykes said Good Friday is the only day without a mass for Catholics and is a sombre mood of reflection.
Regular church-goer Henri Gardner attended the service along with his brother Fred and said they would return for the 3pm service wearing all black.
"This is the day Jesus died and so we all wear black, because he died for us and our sins," Mr Gardner said.
"We dedicate today for Jesus and all that he has done for us. It's a big celebration for what Jesus has done for us and we dedicate our time to the church Friday through to Sunday and our family comes together."
Sister Hannah from the Missionaries of Charity Tarcutta said Jesus showed his great love for the people on this day.
"It's the day Jesus our Saviour died for us on the cross and he was the innocent one, he was totally free of all sin and yet he took on the sins of all people in order to redeem us," Sister Hannah said.
"He came to earth and became one of us, he shared our life in every way expect sin.
"So I think this is a very beautiful day, although it's a sad day.
"We call it Good Friday because Jesus won our salvation and freed us from that burden of sin."
