General News and Announcements

Good Friday and Easter Sunday

5 April 2012

Easter greetings from the General Council Office.

Please note that the General Council Office and United Church Resource Distribution will be closed for the Easter holiday period from 4:30 p.m. (EDT) on Thursday, April 5, 2012, until 8:30 a.m. (EDT) on Tuesday, April 10, 2012.

If you would like to attend a Good Friday or Easter Sunday service at a local United Church congregation, please use the Find a Church feature to assist you in your search. Service times can usually be found either by visiting a congregation’s website or by contacting the congregation by telephone. Frequently service times are listed as a recorded announcement on a church’s answering machine.

In keeping with the spirit of the season, you will also find a number of Lent/Easter related postings on this website. Among these are

And to close, a prayer for Easter Week from Celebrate God’s Presence:

Blessed be the name of God.
As life bursts forth from the darkness of earth’s soil,
so Christ bursts the darkness of despair.
Sadness ends, hope abounds, joy springs forth.
Strength is found to face every tomorrow;
God’s wholeness brings healing to all.
The world and all that is in it glows with the glory of God.

With best wishes for a blessed Easter,
