Updated on April 2, 2016

He Is Risen

Easter a time of new life and new beginnings

Of the greatest importance is the Celebration of the Resurrection of Jesus Christ.

John 20: 16- 18:

16 Jesus said to her, "Mary." She turned toward him and cried out in Aramaic, "Rabboni!" (which means Teacher). 17Jesus said, "Do not hold on to me, for I have not yet returned to the Father. Go instead to my brothers and tell them, 'I am returning to my Father and your Father, to my God and your God.' " 18 Mary Magdalene went to the disciples with the news: "I have seen the Lord!" And she told them that he had said these things to her.

The Easter Lily due to it's trumpet like shape represent God the Father calling Jesus home .
