People Fill Churches on Easter, Not Your Average Sunday

Posted: Updated:

KENNEWICK, Wash.-- More people go to church for Easter than the average Sunday service.

In fact, one survey says 6 in 10 Americans planned to attend church Easter Sunday.

NBC Right Now spoke to some people in Kennewick about the holiday's church attendance.

"We have what we call C and E people. They come out two times a year, Christmas and Easter, but it's nice that they at least come out two times a year even if they don't come all the other days," said John Walker who attends church every Sunday.

"It's important because of our religious beliefs and it's important to us to get out as a family and enjoy time together," said Keeley Wagner, who enjoys family time on the holiday.

More Catholics said they'll attend an Easter service with 70% of them planning to go to church Sunday.

Overall, it's estimated only about 20% of Americans now go to church regularly.
