Easter Blessings


Easter is a Christian festival and holiday celebrating the resurrection of Jesus Christ on the third day after his crucifixion at Calvary as described in the New Testament of the Bible.

Easter is the culmination of the Passion of Christ, preceded by Lent, a forty-day period of fasting, prayer, and penance, in the the Roman Catholic Church. The last week of Lent is called Holy Week, including Maundy Thursday (Holy Thursday in the Catholic Church), commemorating Maundy and the Last Supper, as well as Good Friday, the crucifixion and death of Jesus. Easter is followed by a fifty-day period called Eastertide or the Easter Season, ending with Pentecost Sunday. 

Easter festival is referred to in English by a variety of different names including Easter Day, Resurrection Day, Easter Sunday and Resurrection Sunday. 


May God's love

fill your hearts with peace and joy.

Christ is risen!  He is risen indeed!

What does this mean to believers?

new life, new hope...
