How St. Paul's Parishioners Spent Easter
So how did you spend Easter Day?
Here are a few notable quote-ables…
Becky spent Easter Day with her family at home. Out-of-town family members visited on Zoom, text and videos, and other social media. She exclaimed that “He is Risen! (“he is risen indeed!”)
Betsy Butler described Easter Day as wishing she was singing with her fellow choristers the glorious Easter hymns and looking out at a congregation full of friends and lots of people we’ve never seen before.
Lynn and Bill Bickley like Betsy’s vision. They watched the service from Christ Church Stevensville and had an at home Eucharist. They, along with their Easter Poodle, send Happy Easter wishes!

Jack and M. G. Brosius watched the on-line service at Emmanuel Church. M.G. opined that next year we have to celebrate Easter at either Emmanuel, Sandy Bottom Road, or wherever!
Fred and Jane Welsh watched the service from the National Cathedral. Great (remote) message from Bishop Curry, “It’s Easter anyway!”
On Easter Day, Father Frank and Sue observed a duck waddle up to their backyard. They noticed the duck had settled into the garden bed and when they returned Mrs. Duck had laid an egg. Fr. Frank prefers the image of an egg rather than a bunny to reflect the true Easter message!
