Easter - April 12, 2020
Sunday or third day following his crucifixion is at the heart of Christian belief. Easter sets the experience of springtime next to the ancient stories of deliverance and the proclamation of the risen Christ. Following Jewish custom, the feast begins at sunset on Easter Eve with the Great Vigil of Easter. From early times Christians have observed the week before Easter as a time of special devotion. From this beginning evolved the rites we observe today on Palm Sunday, Maundy Thursday, and Good Friday. These services provide a liturgical experience of the last days of Jesus' earthly life, as well as the time and events leading up to his resurrection. Holy Week ends at sundown on the Saturday with the celebration of the Easter Vigil a a unique and ancient service that opens with the lighting of the Easter fire.
