When is Easter 2022? Key dates for your diary

The Spring Equinox, also known as the March Equinox, is when the Sun crosses the celestial equator from south to north.

It always falls within the dates of March 22 and April 25.

The method for deciding which day Easter Sunday falls on was decided by the Council of Nicea in AD 325.

However, different churches use different dates, as Europe now uses the Gregorian calendar, whereas Eastern Churches (including Greek and Slavic) and Oriental Churches (such as Syrian, Armenian, Coptic, Egyptian and Ethiopian) use the Julian calendar.
