Orthodox Christians celebrate Easter in Jerusalem

The Greek-Orthodox Patriarch of Jerusalem performed the traditional “washing of the feet” ceremony outside the Church of the Holy Sepulcher in Jerusalem on Thursday. Orthodox Christians use the Julian calendar, so their Easter celebrations often fall on a different date to the Roman Catholic and Protestant churches, which follow the Gregorian Calendar.
