What do we celebrate at Easter?

Easter is the most important Christian holiday because it celebrates the resurrection of Jesus, which happened on the third day after he died on the cross, according to the Gospels. Easter is considered a more significant holiday than Christmas because, as Pope Francis stated, “it is the feast of our salvation”. 

When is Easter in 2024?

In 2024, Holy Easter will be on Sunday, 31 March.

How is the Easter day calculated?

To calculate the day on which Easter will fall, we respect the rule established at the Council of Nicaea (an ancient city that has now become İznik, in Turkey), held in 325 AD. The assembly was convened by Emperor Constantine I and was attended by 300 bishops from all the provinces of the Roman Empire. They established that Easter would be celebrated on the Sunday following the first full moon of the Spring equinox.
