This Joyful Eastertide
Easter is our joyful celebration of Jesus’ resurrection!
We call the season of Easter the “Great Fifty Days” (ten days longer than its penitential precursor). Easter begins at sundown on the Saturday immediately before Easter Day. On this Saturday evening the church gathers in “great vigil” to hear the stories of salvation, to celebrate the rites of Christian initiation (baptism, confirmation) and to celebrate the first Eucharist of Easter.
Our worship this season is punctuated by the paschal shout “Alleluia!” And at Holy Family we will observe this most festive of all seasons with additional opportunities for worship, study, fellowship and prayer. The season of Easter concludes with the Feast of Pentecost on June 8, with adult and infant baptisms. We hope you can join us as we celebrate this most joyful of seasons.
