    Do any of the strip hotels offer Easter Sunday mass?

    Helpful answer, Joe. :rolleyes2:

    I am not aware of any church services available inside a casino property in Vegas. Even for Easter Sunday.

    But there are a couple of Catholic churches not too far from The Strip. Where are you staying and will you have a car?

    Guardian Angel Cathedral isn't too far from Encore - http://www.gaclv.org/

    There is another one not to far from LVB and Tropicana, but a quick google search didn't help me.

    Guardian Angel Cathedral couple blocks off the strip near Wynn/Encore

    Saint Joan of Arc Catholic Church downtown by Casino Centre near Fremont

    Lots of others within striking distance - check Catholic diocese website in Las Vegas:

    C'mon, its Vegas. Are there churches, yes. Is a casino going to have a service that possibly takes you away from gambling for a hour plus? No!!

    May be obvious for you, but for some folks, if you don't know, then you don't know.

    No worries, already gave a couple of alternatives.

    What about a wedding chapel? Equally as religious, equally as time consuming at the expense of gambling time, and very common throughout Vegas hotels.

    I am thinking most of the people getting married, even is "chapels" in Vegas are not thinking very religious. These are casinos, with round the clock gambling and drinking.

    But they start at about $299 for a 15-20 minute ceremony so I guess if there was a market for people to pay to go to a mass in a casino it could be done other wise... no chance they'd rather have you playing.

    Not necessarily true.

    Marriage is a civil contract as well. All marriages are civil by by law that is why you get a licence from the county (usually) where it is performed, some are also religious those performed by ministers, priests etc...

    I went to church with my mom at St. Joan of Arc, I enjoyed the mass.

    I read somewhere that Vegas is among the cities with the highest number of churches per capita. Strange, but true. :)

    Yeah that is just a list of Catholic Churches (I assume). That is totally believable based on that sample.
