Easter in China

China's rising number of young Christians gear up for Easter
Chinese Christians are preparing to celebrate Easter amid a nationwide religious renaissance led by an army of young people seeking faith in the modern world, religious leaders and academics said.

Although young Chinese are largely flocking to traditional religions such as Buddhism and Taoism, many are also turning to Christianity in an effort to seek greater knowledge of the West, they said.

"We are seeing more and more college students coming to our services," said Father Andrew Liu Wenming, priest at St. Joseph's Church in China's populous southwestern city of Chongqing.
