Easter Resources for Spiritual Growth

Easter Season

April 4, 2021 – May 23, 2021

Easter Sunday, is the greatest of all Sundays, and Easter Time is the most important of all liturgical times. Easter is the celebration of the Lord’s resurrection from the dead, culminating in his Ascension to the Father and sending of the Holy Spirit upon the Church. There are 50 days of Easter from the first Sunday to Pentecost.

The octave of Easter comprises the eight days which stretch from the first to the second Sunday. It is a way of prolonging the joy of the initial day. In a sense, every day of the Octave is like a little Sunday.

As we enter into this very special time, here are some additional resources and reflections to read and share:

Be Fearless, Be Joyful, Be Renewed: Living the Spirit of Easter
Finding God in Each Other – A Rebirth at Easter
Activities for Families to Celebrate the 50 Days of Easter
 Everyday Resurrections: A Meditation on Easter – Franciscan Spirit Blog
Easter reflection from The United States Conference of Catholic Bishops (USCCB’s)

Easter Series w/ Fr. Paul – Discussing Brant Pitre’s Book “The Case for Jesus”

On the six Monday’s following Easter; April 5 – May 10 from 7-8:30 PM by zoom. We will look at basic questions about Jesus, Is he God? Can we trust the Gospels? And More! This is a wonderful opportunity for those who are either searching about who Jesus really is, or for those who already believe but want to be better informed to help others on this, the most important question of our lives! Click here to sign up for the classes
