The Feast of the Resurrection of Christ. It is the greatest and oldest feast of the Christian Church. Easter is linked to the Jewish Passover by much of its symbolism, as well as by its position in the calendar. In many languages, the words for "Easter" and "Passover" are strikingly similar. The Episcopal Church celebrates the Eucharist with great solemnity on this most holy of feast days. In addition to Easter Day services, it is often observed with family gatherings.
