Did you Know? (Sunday, May 26, 2019)

Eastertide (also called Paschaltide) is the festal season in the liturgical year that focuses on celebrating the Resurrection of Jesus Christ. The Easter Lily is a symbol of the resurrection and floral arrangements of these white flowers with their trumpet-like shape are used in churches of all denominations, during this 50-day period from Easter Sunday to Pentecost Sunday (and especially on Easter morning). The flower is also frequently represented in stained glass windows either in memory of someone or to signify hope, purity and life everlasting.
