Dear Parents and Guardians,
Easter vacation is upon us and will begin on Thursday, April 1st and classes will resume on Monday, April 12th.
During the Easter season, we will often see the image of the Easter Bunny. At these times, I hope that the following will help remind us all of the true meaning of Easter.
The Symbol of the Easter Rabbit
The white Easter bunny is a symbol that few people connect with religion. Long ago, however, it had a lovely religious meaning. According to legend, on the first Easter morning, a rabbit was living in the garden where Jesus was laid to rest. He was the only animal to actually see the Resurrection. The rabbit was thunderstruck at the sight of Jesus. The dazzling light bleached the rabbit’s brown fur to a snowy white and erased all the color from his eyes. The rabbit saw the good and loving Lord Jesus and ever since has been among the gentlest and most peaceful of animals.
May this year’s Easter bring everyone in the Saint Leo the Great School community new hope and joy.
Have a blessed and meaningful Easter!
