Enjoy your celebration this weekend
There are important days during April for many faiths, and we’d like to wish you a safe and peaceful time with family, friends and community. The PeaceQuest newsletter will return next Saturday.
April 5 to April 13 – Passover: This holiday spans 7-days and commemorates the Israelites being freed from slavery in Egypt.
April 9 – Easter: Easter is the most important holiday in Christianity. It celebrates the resurrection of Jesus Christ — Lord and Savior of Christians.
April 14 – Vaisakhi: This ancient festival celebrates both the Solar New Year and springtime harvest.
April 16 – Feast of the Divine Mercy: This day, celebrated on the Second Sunday of Easter, is based on the private revelations of St. Faustina Kowalska. St. John Paul II declared that it would be celebrated when he canonized her in 2000.
April 21 to April 22 – Eid al-Fitr: The holiday that marks the end of Ramadan. To end the fast, a big meal is its primary event.
