Liturgy and Easter Egg Hunts

This news is a few weeks late but better late than never!

Here are a couple photos of our Mass on Easter Sunday morning:  special thanks to our servers of Holy Week!  And it was a joy to have seminarian David Gayhart with us who will be ordained to the transitional diaconate in a few months!

I hope you are having a joyful Eastertide! We are. The Liturgy of Holy Week and Easter Week were so sacred and uplifting. On Easter Monday we had a mix of the spiritual and the mundane…The Exultet and an Easter Egg Hunt combined!

What do these have in common?  Nothing…so you might think…except when a group of two aspiring nuns in a monastery come up with a fun Easter game.

“2012 Eggsultet Hunt”

  • two teams racing to be the first to put the Exsultet together
  • slips of paper with bits of text of the Exsultet are in eggs hidden in and outside the monastery

Sisters listen with full attention

Who won?

It was a tie! No lie!

Too much Easter candy?

A week later…

*Wondering what the Exsultet is? It is an awesome hymn of praise sung before the Easter candle at the Easter Vigil.  Find out more here and here.
