Liturgical Calendar



Liturgical Season: Easter

Sunday 1 April to Sunday 20 May, 2018

Easter also called Pascha (Greek, Latin) celebrates the resurrection of Our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ from the dead, described in the New Testament as having occurred on the third day of his burial after his crucifixion by the Romans at Calvary.

It is the culmination of the Passion of Jesus, preceded by Lent a forty-day period of fasting, prayer, and penance. Holy Week (the week before Easter) contains the days of the Easter Triduum, including Maundy Thursday, commemorating the Maundy and Last Supper, as well as Good Friday, commemorating the crucifixion and death of Jesus. The Easter Season, begins on Easter Sunday and lasts seven weeks, ending with the coming of the fiftieth day, Pentecost Sunday.

The Easter Vigil is the usual time to celebrate the Sacraments of Initiation (Baptism, Confirmation and Eucharist) with Adults. The Easter Season is therefore the time for post-baptismal catechesis or ‘mystagogy’ with the newly baptised or ‘neophytes’. This is a time for the community and the neophytes together to grow in deepening their grasp of the Paschal Mystery and in making it part of their lives through meditation on the Gospel, sharing in the Eucharist, and in doing works of charity.
