The Great Fifty Days of Easter

Easter is a festival season of fifty days whose first day is Easter Day, the Sunday of the Resurrection, and whose last day is the Day of Pentecost. 

The Great Fifty Days of Easter are the time when those who have reaffirmed their baptismal vows or have been baptized at the Easter Vigil, reflect on the meaning of their baptism. Through the lectionary texts (readings from scripture) we explore the “mysteries” of our faith. Each time we celebrate the Holy Eucharist using Eucharistic Prayer A, we proclaim the mystery of faith:

"Christ has died. Christ is risen. Christ will come again." (Book of Common Prayer page 363)
