This Sunday is Easter! Easter Sunday also begins the season called the “Great Fifty Days.” It begins at sunset Easter Eve and continues through Pentecost. The Easter Season is more than an extended celebration of the resurrection of Jesus. The initial purpose of the 50-day Easter season was to continue the faith formation of new Christians who completed their final preparatory period during Lent.
