Easter 2017


Christ is Risen, Alleluia!

Jesus Christ's Resurrection is the pinnacle of the liturgical year as Christians.  Easter is a 50 day season that rejoices in the fact that Christ has triumphed over sin and death.  During this season we recall Christ's Ascension and the season culminates with the descent of the Holy Spirit on Pentecost. 

We are an Easter people and Alleluia is our song.


"Do not be afraid!  I know that you are seeking Jesus the crucified.  He is not here, for he has been raised just as he said."

Matthew 28:5-6
