Easter & Pentecost

At Easter we celebrate the resurrection of Jesus from the dead.

The Great Fifty Days of Eastertide form a single festival period in which the tone of joy created at the Easter Vigil is kept right through the following seven weeks, and the Church celebrates the gloriously risen Christ.

Eggs are often decorated and given as gifts at Easter as a sign of new life, and because they remind us of the great stone that was rolled away from Jesus’ tomb when he rose from the grave.

Towards the end of the Easter season we celebrate The Ascension. At this times, Jesus commissioned his disciples to continue his work, he promised the gift of the Holy Spirit, and then he was no longer among them in the flesh.

Easter concludes with the coming of the Holy Spirit, at Pentecost.
