Easter Sunday-Rev.Tim Kesicki holds a mass at his family’s dining
The head of the Jesuit order in north America, and lives in Washington, DC, Rev. Tim Kesicki, will officiate a Mass around his family’s dining room table at their home in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania this easter Sunday.
“During the homily, it is not uncommon for my mom to offer comments,” Kesicki said, laughing. “It’s very welcome, of course.”
But for many Christians, Easter this year will be dramatically different: a home-bound, shelter-in-place holy day. No Easter parades, no egg hunts at church, no church at all. As there’s been all Lent, there’s a solemness in the air. It doesn’t escape many Christians that they’re celebrating Jesus’ resurrection at a time of rampant sickness and death.
