Alleluia! Christ is Risen
Easter isn’t just one day – it’s a season of 50 days Campaign for a real Eastertide!
Christians make a lot of Lent – giving up things, fasting, praying, and other worthy things – some of them good, some of them pretty heavy going. Lent is a season of 40 days to get ready for Easter, and Easter is a season of joy and celebration and it’s 50 days. (Easter Day to Pentecost Sunday).
We love the Easter Season at St Chrysostom’s. We are a welcoming church which loves to celebrate richly, and Easter season is the time to do that. Our great Easter Candle (and it is big!) is placed right at the front of the Church throughout Easter, our Easter flowers are lovely, our liturgies resonate with Alleluias.
And more… We don’t want our Easter joy to be confined to a church building. As Easter People we want to live out our Easter faith. So at St Chrysostom’s this year we’ve a special outreach initiative – Sharing the Light. We campaign for a Real Eastertide! We look for ways to explore the beauty and joy of this special season, and show ourselves ourselves and others that we are an Easter people.
So we campaign for a real Eastertide! We invite you to make this wonderful season special for yourself and others. We’ve lots of ideas as to how to celebrate Easter.
Why not take some of them up or make some of your own?
