Something Special About the Easter Date This Year

Easter can land  anywhere between March 22 and April 25 each year, depending upon certain variables.  This year, it lands on one of the later dates, April 24. 

The neat thing about April 24 is that when we are not celebrating Jesus raising from the dead, April 24 is the day set aside to remember two of the women who went to the tomb on the very first Easter morning ... two of the first people to learn of Christ's resurrection:  Saint Mary of Clopas and Saint Salome.

Mark 16: 1-2
Feast Day of Mary of Clopas and Salome: April 24
