HOPE
       

       

Isaiah 40:31            
but those who hope in the Lord
    will renew their strength.
They will soar on wings like eagles;

they will run and not grow weary,
    they will walk and not be faint.

EASTER 2019

March 6 - Ash Wednesday
April 14 - Palm Sunday
April 18 - Holy Thursday
April 19 - Good Friday
April 21 - EASTER 

Easter for Christians is not just one day, but rather a 50-day period. The season of Easter, or Eastertide, begins at sunset on the eve of Easter and ends on Pentecost, the day we celebrate the gift of the Holy Spirit and the birth of the Church (see Acts 2).

Easter is also more than just an extended celebration of the resurrection of Jesus. In the early church, Lent was a season for new converts to learn about the faith and prepare for baptism on Easter Sunday. The initial purpose of the 50-day Easter season was to continue the faith formation of new Christians.

Today, this extended season gives us time to rejoice and experience what it means when we say Christ is risen. It’s the season when we remember our baptisms and how through this sacrament we are, according to the liturgy, “incorporated into Christ’s mighty acts of salvation.” As “Easter people,” we also celebrate and ponder the birth of the Church and gifts of the Spirit (Pentecost), and how we are to live as faithful disciples of Christ.

THE LORD'S PRAYER



Our Father, who art in Heaven, 
hallowed by Thy name;
Thy Kingdom come; 
Thy Will be done,
on Earth as it is in Heaven. 
Give us this day our daily bread, 
and forgive us our trespasses as we forgive those who trespass against us. 
And lead us not into temptation; but deliver us from evil. 
For thine is the kingdom, the power, and the glory, forever. Amen

The Great Commission


Matthew 28:16-20
English Standard Version (ESV)

16 Now the eleven disciples went to Galilee, to the mountain to which Jesus had directed them. 17 And when they saw him they worshiped him, but some doubted.18 And Jesus came and said to them, “All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me. 19 Go therefore and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, 20 teaching them to observe all that I have commanded you. And behold, I am with you always, to the end of the age.”
