Easter is celebrated as a season which begins on Easter Day and comes to a close 50 days later with the gift of the Holy Spirit, which we celebrate at Pentecost.


At Easter we celebrate the resurrection of Jesus Christ – the central event of the Christian faith. It is a joyful season (so lots of “Alleluias”!) when we remember how God defeated death and brought new life and hope out of the apparent disaster of the crucifixion.
