Sister's Easter Catechism at Shea's

Sister's Easter Catechism at Shea's

Celebrate the Easter Season with Sister as she answers time worn questions of the season like “Who was Mary Magdalene?”, “Why isn’t Easter on the same day every year like Christmas?”, and “Will My Bunny Go To Heaven?”.

Part pageant, and wHOLY hysterical, this latest of the sinfully funny Late Nite Catechism series unearths the origins of Easter bunnies, Easter eggs, Easter baskets, Easter bonnets, and, of course, those yummy Easter Peeps. Sister answers questions about Saint Francis, patron saint of animals, pet heaven (where do my pets go?), and the significance of those adorable baby chicks!

Get ready to participate as Sister runs her own version of the Easter Egg Hunt, with special rewards, and candy give-aways.
