The Christian Easter is the transformation of the pagan festival celebrating Eostre, a fertility goddess of spring. Easter Day is always the first Sunday after the full moon that occurs on or after the spring equinox on March 21. Therefore, Easter cannot be earlier than March 22, or later than April 25
The Easter season includes Ascension Day (the fortieth day after Easter, always a Thursday) and lasts a full fifty days, ending with the Day of Pentecost. During this time we look to the future with confidence and great hope. The color of the Easter season is white.

The worldwide Anglican Communion, of which the Episcopal Church is a part, has preserved the faith and order that in the early days was taught everywhere: the threefold ministry of bishops, priests, and deacons; the sacraments of Baptism and the Holy Eucharist; the creeds, as the brief record of certain truths on which the church is based; and the holy scriptures.
