Greater love

Eastertide - a Single Joyful Feast

No matter which translation we read, we celebrate God's love for us at Easter.

  • This is the very best way to love. Put your life on the line for your friends. — The Message
  • Greater love has no one than this, that someone lay down his life for his friends. — English Standard Version Anglicised

Easter services at St. Peter's info

Eastertide is the period of fifty days from Easter Sunday to Pentecost Sunday.

It is celebrated as a single joyful feast, indeed as the "great Lord's Day". Each Sunday of the season is treated as a Sunday of Easter, and, after the Sunday of the Resurrection, they are named Second Sunday of Easter, Third Sunday of Easter, etc. up to the Seventh Sunday of Easter, while the whole fifty-day period concludes with Pentecost Sunday.
