Easter Services 2018

Our Easter Services 2018

Easter Sunday is the day when we celebrate the resurrection of Jesus Christ. Easter marks the completion of Lent, which is a 40-day period of prayer, penance and fasting. The last week of Lent, which is the week before Easter, is often referred to as Holy Week. During this week, we observe Palm Sunday, which marks Jesus' return to Jerusalem; Maundy Thursday, which is when Jesus held his last supper with his disciples; and Good Friday, which is when Jesus was crucified.
