The Easter Season begins with Easter Day, April 4, 2021 and concludes on Pentecost, May 23, 2021.

During this season, we focus on Christ's resurrection and ascension and on the givings of the Holy Spirit on the first Easter (John 20:22 –23) and the Day of Pentecost (Acts 2).

Explore ways you can continue to celebrate Jesus' resurrection throughout the season.
