April 10 : Good Friday
02 days till Easter

Did you know that in many Catholic churches, Good Friday services begin at precisely 3 o’clock?

This is the time that Jesus is believed to have died on the Cross.

Good Friday is a solemn day of prayer, repentance and, in some churches, fasting in commemoration of Jesus’ death. Catholics, Greek and Russian Orthodox, and many Protestants celebrate Good Friday.

Easter is the time of springtime festivals, a time to welcome back the Tulips, the Crocuses and the Daffodils. A time for Christians to celebrate the life, death and resurrection of Christ. And a time of chocolate bunnies, marshmallow chicks, and colored eggs!

So join our Easter festivities as we present a new “Did You Know?” fact each day as we countdown to Easter on April 12th!
