Easter or Resurrection Sunday is the day Christians celebrate the resurrection of Jesus the Christ from the dead. Easter is a movable feast. That is, the date of Easter is not fixed but is determined by a system based on a lunar calendar. Easter is celebrated on the first Sunday following the first full moon after the Spring equinox (usually on March 21) The date of Easter can range between March 22 and April 25 depending on the lunar cycle. Like Christmas, Easter itself is a period of time rather than just a day. It is actually a seven-week season of the church year called Eastertide, the Great Fifty Days that begins at sundown the evening before Easter Sunday (the Easter Vigil) and lasts for six more Sundays until Pentecost Sunday.

From the Senior Warden
Amazing grace - that's what we all experienced during our March retreat. After enjoying a delightful Greek dinner at Leslie Yannetti's beautiful home, we got to know one another better by finding 10 things we had in common. On Saturday, Brian Tucker our morning mediation, followed by another of Patty Papps' 'growing together" activities. We then delved into an "up close and personal" look at all of the many, many ministries we are involved in at Prince of Peace. We learned who were our quiet heroes, guiding these efforts over the years, and each vestryman and woman aligned him/herself with one specific one to encourage and mentor this year. We literally "reinvented the wheel" with the chart below.
