Lent 2016: Babylonians & Lent Madness Saints!!

datedistIt is possible that you may, someday, find yourself a little bored at some point in our regular Sunday service. Fret not! You could turn in your Prayerbook to page 880 and read the fascinating description of how we figure out when Easter comes. Turn the page and you will find a handy chart telling you the date of Easter from 1900 (which always confounded me in a Prayerbook that was published in 1976!) until 2089 (kind of a random date on its own).

Theoretically, Easter could be as early as March 22nd (which hasn’t happened
since before 1900) or as late as April 25, which will happen in 2038, the only time it is that late in two centuries.

Bored yet? Our Lenten Programs will save you!

Prepare your Ballots! Join us for the unmitigated fun that is Lent Madness.
