April 21, 2019 – Easter
I would like to take this time to extend my warmest wishes to all who are celebrating Easter.
Easter is the greatest feast in the Christian calendar. On Easter Sunday, Christians celebrate the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead. This religious festival comes at the end of Lent – a period of 40 days of prayer, contemplation and fasting. During Lent, Christians prepare themselves spiritually for the crucifixion of Christ on Good Friday.
Easter is a time of new beginnings – a time to look to the future with a renewed sense of hope and purpose.
As you gather with your loved ones at this time of re-birth, let us celebrate the promise and hope of Easter.
From my family to yours: Happy Easter.
