Youth Ministry Dancers at Grace United Methodist Church of Los AngelesLITURGICAL SEASON
Eastertide is the sixth season of the Christian calendar year that begins at sunset on the eve of Easter and ends on Pentecost, the day we celebrate the gift of the Holy Spirit and the birth of the Church (see Acts 2).

Easter is also more than just an extended celebration of the resurrection of Jesus. In the early church, the initial purpose of the 50-day Easter season was to continue the faith formation of new Christians.

Today, this extended season gives us time to rejoice and experience what it means when we say Christ is risen. It’s the season when we remember our baptisms and how through this sacrament we are, according to the liturgy, “incorporated into Christ’s mighty acts of salvation.” As “Easter people,” we also celebrate and ponder the birth of the Church and gifts of the Spirit (Pentecost), and how we are to live as faithful disciples of Christ. The symbols of the season are butterflies, the empty cross and the lamb. The colors are white and gold.


The symbols of the season are palm branches, the cross and a crown of thorns.
