Finding Jesus: An Easter Season Planning Day

The fifty days from the Sunday of the Resurrection to Pentecost Sunday are celebrated in joy and exultation as one feast day, indeed as one ‘great Sunday’. These are the days above all others in which the Alleluia is sung. The Sundays of this time of year are considered to be Sundays of Easter. (The General Norms for the Liturgical Year and the Calendar 22-24).
