BEIRUT: Across Lebanon people gathered in churches and homes to mark Easter Sunday.In the town of Maghdoushe in the southern Sidon region, the local Ethiopian community held religious service and celebrations including song and dance. The celebration, mainly by women wearing blue with crosses painted on their clothes and bodies, is a brief respite for a roughly 100,000 strong community who mainly work as domestic helpers and service workers and are prone to abuse and inequality in Lebanon. The town of Maghdoushe itself is home to an ancient religious shrine to Our Lady of Mantara, and is a pilgrimage site for Melkite Greek Catholics.
