The Sunday after Easter is Trinity Sunday

The Sunday after Easter is Trinity Sunday

It is still Easter.

Yes, the Sunday after Easter Day is … the Second Sunday of Easter, Low Sunday; Station at St. Pancras; Thomas Sunday, Dominica in Albis [Depositis/Deponendis], Quasimodo, Divine Mercy, Octave Day of Easter,… but NOT the Sunday after Easter.

The Sunday after Easter is… [OK – you read the answer above].

It is still Easter.

I went to a Eucharist recently, with a large gathering of people, and the Easter candle was not even anywhere to be seen (at another service even the candles on the altar remained unlit – merely decorative – but that is another story…)

  1. At my parish, not only is the Paschal Candle up front throughout Easter Season, I get to church early and light it so that it appears to most worshipers that it has been lit continuously.

    We try to have people give flower donations so that the altar remains pretty lavishly covered in flowers, too.

    And, we sing the Easter dismissal on Sundays through (and including) Pentecost.
