Members of the town's six Catholic churches took part in the open-air celebration of faith in the town centre. The event is a key part of Hartlepool's Easter celebrations, and we were there to capture it on camera. Here are our pictures.

The service is organised by the Hartlepool Youth Ministry.
Each of the six churches carries a cross for the service.
The churches involved are St Mary's, St John Vianney, St Thomas More, St Cuthbert's, St Patrick's and St Joseph's.
The service began at 11am and was largely led by the town's young people.
A highlight of Holy Week.

Youth ministry member Bernadette Malcolmson said: It is a way of witnessing our faith and that is a very visible thing in order to do that.
"If we can make somebody driving past stop and think then we have done a good job."
