Happy Easter!

Dear Antioch Family and Friends,

Although Easter Sunday is almost over, the Easter season continues for the next 50 days. I wish you a very blessed and uplifting Eastertide. May the joy of the Resurrection be your constant companion in the days ahead.

Christ has risen!

In truth He has risen!

May you have a spirit-filled week!

This is the most important week in the Christian year, beginning with Palm Sunday, moving toward Maundy Thursday, Good Friday, and the Vigil on Holy Saturday, all leading us to the celebration of Easter on Sunday.

May you have a spirit-filled week!
