MADURAI: As Tamil Nadu government decided to reopen places of worship on weekends for public after five and a half month ban, churches in Madurai witnessed people in large numbers for Sunday service.
“Not going to church on Sundays was one of the worst things that could happen to a devotee like me, but even then waited for Covid to settle down,” said T Helen, of Chinna Chokkikulam.
Churches in Madurai, including the CSI church in Narimedu, the St Mary’s Church in South Gate, Sahaya Matha Church in Koodal Nagar, Holy Rosary Church, and others across the district had people coming throughout the day on Sunday.
In the other districts also, people visited the churches in large numbers. “It is like Christmas to go to church after such a long time,” said Rajkumar of Melur.
