An Easter Message from the Dean

It is a joyful thing to celebrate the Resurrection of Jesus from the dead, but Easter does not exist as an isolated day. The Gospel accounts of the events between Palm Sunday and Easter (i.e., Holy Week) are inextricably bound to one another and must be read and understood as a seamless narrative. Holy Week without Easter ends in tragedy and death. Easter without Holy Week becomes a fairy tale. Taken together as a totality, the account becomes the story of our redemption, calling us to look honestly at issues of our past, challenges of our present and hopes for our future.
