Easter 2024 in Pictures

Easter was early in 2024. Easter is celebrated on the first Sunday after the Paschal full moon, the first full moon occurring on or after the spring equinox (March 21). As a result, Easter always falls between March 22 and April 25. This year, Easter fell on March 31. We thank our parishioners for sharing photos from the Easter Vigil (which included the RCIA Sacraments of Initiation) and Easter morning. There are also lovely pictures from our parish’s first-ever Easter Basket blessing on Holy Saturday morning.
