Holy Hilarity Sunday
April 12, 2015 at 9:30 am–10:30 am
In the very earliest days of Christianity a tradition arose to celebrate the Easter Season by means of a “Holy Hilarity” Sunday. The custom is rooted in early church theologians who reasoned that God had played a tremendous practical joke on the devil by raising Jesus from the dead. They called it risus paschalis—the Easter laugh! St. Paul’s will continue this custom on April 12, the first Sunday after Easter. Start thinking about funny stories, jokes, talents, skits, etc. (church appropriate) that you would like to share then call the church office at 825-2280 to let us know. This is a light-hearted continuation of our Easter celebrations. So join us! Easter is worth celebrating with all the joy that is within us. We look forward to seeing you there!
