THE SUNDAY OF THE RESURRECTION: EASTER DAY

Collect:

Almighty God, who through thine only-begotten Son Jesus Christ hast overcome death and opened unto us the gate of everlasting life: Grant that we, who celebrate with joy the day of the Lord’s resurrection, may be raised from the death of sin by thy life-giving Spirit; through the same Jesus Christ our Lord, who liveth and reigneth with thee and the same Spirit ever, one God, world without end. Amen.

We would be delighted if you decide to worship with us on Easter Day. Everyone is invited! Easter is the reason for our existence; there would be no church, no Christian faith, and no hope without the resurrection. Please be aware that there is no Mass as part of this service. If you would like to make your Holy Communion today, we encourage you to attend the 8am Eucharist or the 11am Eucharist.
