The Australian Christian Lobby (ACL) today welcomed the overnight passage of legislation making Easter Sunday a public holiday in New South Wales.

ACL’s NSW Director, David Hutt, said the addition of a public holiday on Easter Sunday meant more people would be able to celebrate Easter Sunday with family and friends.

“The Australian Christian Lobby congratulates the Keneally Government for this initiative,” Mr Hutt said.

“Easter Sunday is one of the most important days on the Christian calendar and it is wonderful to see that people will now be able to spend this day celebrating with friends and family.”

Mr Hutt noted that support for the changes was bipartisan, again demonstrating the importance of creating a public holiday for Easter Sunday.
