Dear Ladies of TASTE, 

As we experience the most unusual Holy Week perhaps in our lives, many people around the world are about to learn that Easter Is NOT about a new dress, a fancy hat, floral prints, hidden eggs, baskets of candy, bunny rabbits, family portraits, or even packed churches.  Rather, Easter has been and still is all about the empty tomb, the risen Christ, and how much Jesus loves us that he suffered and died for our sins.While the TASTE Program will be on our planned Easter break this week and next, we still wanted to touch base with our members to share resources associated with Holy Week.  We are including the Holy Week schedule for both the Archdiocese of Baltimore and Washington as well as some local events and Good Friday recommendations.
