Easter at the Cathedral

Easter isn’t just one Sunday, but rather a whole season: fifty days of celebration in honor of the resurrection life offered to us. During this Easter season, for which we have been waiting expectantly in hope, the Cathedral will be offering many worship options and additional programming that embraces this new resurrection life.

Easter Day is the annual feast of the resurrection, the pascha or Christian Passover, and the eighth day of cosmic creation. Faith in Jesus' resurrection on the Sunday or third day following his crucifixion is at the heart of Christian belief. Easter sets the experience of springtime next to the ancient stories of deliverance and the proclamation of the risen Christ. In the west, Easter occurs on the first Sunday after the full moon on or after the vernal equinox. Easter always falls between Mar. 22 and Apr. 25 inclusive. Join us in the Cathedral on April 9, 2023 for Easter services.
Don't forget to wear your Easter hats to be part of our annual photo in the Bishop's Courtyard during the 10 a.m. hour!
