DUBAI: Solemn services marked Good Friday across the UAE as throngs of Christian worshippers packed churches for prayers, sermons and meditation. More than 15,000 worshippers, young and old, came together at St Thomas Orthodox Cathedral in Dubai.

Baselius Marthoma Paulose II, Catholicose of the East and Malankara Metropolitan and supreme head of the Indian Orthodox Syrian Church, was the chief celebrant and led the liturgy that commenced at 7.30am with morning prayers. Reverend Father T.J. Johnson, vicar of the church, Reverend Father Leny Chacko, vice vicar, and Reverend Father Nelson John were co-celebrants. The Catholicose said the UAE was a shining example of religious tolerance and harmony. He lauded the rulers of the country for their vision for 
the country and compassion for 
all people.
