Easter for Catholics and Christians 2024

Both Catholic and Orthodox Christians celebrate Easter, yet each tradition observes it with unique customs and dates. While both traditions commemorate the resurrection of Jesus Christ, they often do so on different dates due to variances in the ecclesiastical calendar. 

In 2024, Catholic Easter falls on March 31st, following the Gregorian calendar, whereas Orthodox Easter occurs on May 5th, according to the Julian calendar. Despite this disparity, both Easter celebrations resonate with profound spiritual significance, emphasizing the triumph of hope and renewal through the resurrection of Christ. Both traditions incorporate rich liturgical practices, communal gatherings, and joyful expressions of faith, albeit with distinct cultural and theological nuances that reflect their respective histories and traditions.
