Christ is risen, alleluia!

Easter Sunday commemorates the resurrection of our Lord, Jesus Christ

Easter Sunday commemorates the resurrection of Jesus on the third day after his burial and crucifixion. Easter marks the end of Holy Week, the end of Lent, the last day of the Easter Triduum (Holy Thursday, Good Friday and Easter Sunday). Jesus’ resurrection marks the triumph of good over evil, sin and death. Alleluia, Christ Is Risen!

An Easter Sunday Prayer

Jesus, we stand in awe at the mystery of your death and resurrection.
We wonder at the depths of your love for us.
May all peoples of the earth receive the good news of your gospel.
As your people we ask this day for the power to live in the joy of your rising.
May we sing with all creation: Hail, O Light of Christ! Welcome, Risen Lord. Amen.
