Whether it’s the eight-day octave that follows our Easter celebration of the Resurrection of Jesus or the full 50 days of the Easter Season that culminate on Pentecost, one thing is sure: Easter doesn’t end on Easter Sunday! Give students a roadmap through the season of Easter and its many, many feast days. Ask your children: Why don’t we celebrate saints’ days during the Octave of Easter? You will find the answer in The Easter Season, a resource sheet that explains the significance of this week and the rest of this holy season.
