Sharing Easter Content

Easter is a strange season for cultural Catholics who are not practicing faith. Easter Sunday certainly stands out in their imaginations, but mostly for cultural reasons — it’s a day they may mark with religious observance, but they’ll definitely mark it socially with friends and family. And then it’s over — kind of like Christmas Day. While it’s important to help committed disciples realize that Easter lasts 8 days, the social media conversation will be moving on from the Easter “moment” soon after Easter Sunday. 

Because Grotto’s strategy is to walk with those who are not practicing faith, we focus on themes that relate to Easter (such as joy and new life) after Easter Sunday during the Easter season. These themes resonate with disciples and the disaffiliated alike, and leave a door open for folks who are not practicing. 

Here are pieces of content that can work during the Easter season:
