As April and I suggest in an upcoming User’s Guide to Sunday:

You observed Lent: Plan something special for your family this Easter Season. How about a special Sunday morning breakfast each week? Or ice cream after Mass? A family Sunday outing? Maybe a special Easter dessert? Here’s the Easter schedule:

1. April 12: Easter Sunday

2. April 19: Easter Sunday II, Divine Mercy Sunday

3. April 26: Emmaus Sunday

4. May 3: Good Shepherd

5. May 10: Vine and Branches

6. May 17: ‘New Commandment’

7. May 24: Sunday after the Ascension (or, in some dioceses, Ascension Sunday)
