“Holy Hilarity” Worship Service

April 23, 2017 at 9:30 am10:30 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 23, the first Sunday after Easter.

If you have a funny story, joke, talent, skit, etc. (church appropriate) that you would like to share then call the church office @ 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!
