The purpose of any calendar is to help people within a given society to order their lives. Most modern countries use the Gregorian calendar, but in actual fact there are about 40 different calendars in use around the world today, particularly for determining religious dates. The Church’s Liturgical Calendar is one of these and is not so much concerned with ‘counting days’ but in setting out guidelines for the celebration of the mystery of Christ over the period of a year.
As part of this year’s Easter celebrations, Year 10 and 11 students from Mercedes College volunteered at the annual Ladies of Variety Children’s Easter Picnic held on March 27.
More than 1300 Greek Orthodox parishioners participated in a unique Easter celebration at a Catholic church in Adelaide after fire destroyed their church at Glenelg North last week.
