The Interchurch Council of Greater New Bedford held its annual Easter Sunrise Service at Fort Phoenix in Fairhaven on Sunday, 4/21/19 at 5:55 a.m., with about 125 hardy souls who turned out under threatening skies. The rain held off, just barely, with no real sunrise to speak of. But the sky did lighten to mark the sun’s rise behind the clouds. The rain started to drip a bit, just at the end of the service. With a quick reference to a “monsoon,” about to move in, the Rev. David Lima suggested a quick exit to the crowd. Photos by Glenn C. Silva. Find more of his photos on Instagram at @asttephoto
