Easter

The sound of Alleluias fills the 50 days of Easter Sunday to Pentecost as we give thanks for the gift of our salvation. The Easter Triduum recalls the passion and resurrection of Christ in the sacred journey from Holy Thursday to Easter Vigil. "Dying he destroyed our death. Rising he restored our life."

Activity of the Week

Easter Sunday

Choose one of the following activities as a way to further reflect on the Sunday readings:

  • Easter is a time to celebrate new life. Plan an Easter egg hunt for all ages of the family. Fill plastic eggs with candy and put slips of paper containing uplifting Bible verses in some of the eggs. Have anyone who finds an egg with a Bible verse open it up and share what is written on the slip of paper.
  • Decorate an Easter candle to reflect the resurrection of Jesus. Let everyone contribute in some way. Use the candle as a table centerpiece and light it every evening during the Easter Season.
  • Make Easter bread together as a family. Before placing the bread in the oven, thank God for sending Jesus and for all of the blessings bestowed on your family.
  • Color Easter eggs as a family and discuss their meaning. Point out that an egg is hard like a tomb but it also gives new life. As the activity is in process, discuss what is new in your life.
