Easter: Statement from Premier Notley

Premier Rachel Notley issued the following statement wishing Albertans a happy Easter:

 

“Easter commemorates Jesus Christ’s resurrection and the fulfilment of his mission on Earth. Through a beautiful diversity of liturgy and practice, Alberta’s Christians contemplate the meaning of sacrifice at Easter and embrace the promises of forgiveness and compassion.

“For Albertans of many traditions, the Easter season is a herald of spring, a time of hope and new life and an occasion to find spiritual renewal in the company of family and friends.

“Whether you celebrate Easter at a joyful church service, at a festive dinner table – or both – I wish all marking the holiday today a very happy Easter.”
