The Season of Easter
Easter, the oldest celebration of the Christian year, is not a single day but an entire season: Easter lasts fifty days, from Easter Day (the Sunday of the Resurrection) through the Day of Pentecost. The season also includes the feast of the Ascension, when the resurrected Jesus ascended to heaven and was seen on earth no longer. Throughout the year every Sunday—even during Lent—is considered a little Easter, a mini feast of the resurrection on what Christians have called the first day of the week. The primary theme of Easter is the resurrection: on this day Jesus was raised from the dead, overcoming the power of death and the grave. We celebrate that we, too, are raised to everlasting life with him in our baptism.

St. Luke’s Rector
St. Luke’s Episcopal Church in Wilton is pleased to announce that the Rev. John Balicki has joined the church as their new rector. Before becoming an Episcopal priest, Rev. Balicki has been a civil engineer, a regional planner, a Catholic priest, a pastoral counselor, and the bicycle/pedestrian coordinator for the state of Maine. Most recently, he served as Episcopal priest at St. Alban’s Church in Cape Elizabeth and at St. Mark’s in Waterville. He is joined by his wife Karen.
We gather each Sunday morning at 9:30, to pray for each other and the world, read and preach the gospel, and work to appropriate it in our lives. You are welcome wherever you are on your spiritual journey.
