Church Season

The Liturgical Season Of Eastertide

 BrotherWord He Is Risen1

Eastertide - a Single Joyful Feast

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

  • Greater love than this hath no man, when any man bestoweth his life for his friends. — 1599 Geneva Bible
  • 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
  • And here is how to measure it—the greatest love is shown when a person lays down his life for his friends; — Living Bible

Easter services at St. Peter's Church 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.

Countdown To Trinity Sunday

Passover2

 

On Thursday March 29, we celebrated a Passover Meal as a church body. It was a huge success. We ate together, sang together and celebrated a traditional Passover meal. The traditional food was substituted with items that are easily obtained in this area of the world, but the importance of them was not lessened as a result. I was particularly touched to be able to serve communion to my table-mates and enjoy their company as we remembered Jesus last night with his

My dear, dear Family in Christ Jesus,

Adaptedfrom Romans 1:1-7 

Timothy, a servant of Christ Jesus, called to be an apostle and set apart for the gospel of God— the gospel he promised beforehand through his prophets in the Holy Scriptures regarding his Son, who as to his earthly life was a descendant of David, and who through the Spirit of holiness was appointed the Son of God in power by his resurrection from the dead: Jesus Christ our Lord.

As a conservative, why do I remain in the Anglican Church of Canada? Here are five reasons.

By Dean Mercer

The Rev. Dr. Dean Mercer is incumbent of the Anglican Church of St. Paul, L’Amoreaux, an instructor in liturgy at Wycliffe College, Toronto, and a member of the Canadian chapter of the Anglican Communion Institute.

Scripture - John 20:1-18

Early on the first day of the week, while it was still dark, Mary Magdalene went to the tomb and saw that the stone had been removed from the entrance. So she came running to Simon Peter and the other disciple, the one Jesus loved, and said, “They have taken the Lord out of the tomb, and we don’t know where they have put him!”

So Peter and the other disciple
