ECCLESIASTICAL PROCLAMATION WHEREAS the beliefs on matters of death and resurrection are especially promulgated during the weekend of the First Sunday after the first full moon after the Vernal Equinox, and WHEREAS these concepts are so closely tied by many in many churches to ancient ceremonies of fertility and symbolized by Bunnies and Eggs and other esoteric symbols of rebirth and new life, and WHEREAS the promise of eternal life was extended to everyone as far back as 1939 (or even earlier, to hear some tell it) and that possibility is recognized by lots of folks, and WHEREAS the Saturday prior to the Sunday mentioned above has heretofore remained generally unclaimed, unnamed, and uncelebrated, now, THEREFORE BE IT RESOLVED that the Saturday before the First Sunday after the first full moon after the Vernal Equinox be proclaimed and known as ELVIS SATURDAY from this day forward, and be celebrated by the faithful in joyous recognition of all Spring Festivals associated with rebirth and fertility with the eternal melodies of St. Elvis Aron Presley, who lives forever in the eternal present. Wherefore I have set my mark and caused to be affixed the seal of the Church of Elvis ULC on this 14th day of April, 1990. Bishop C.A.Jennings, D.D. Saturday, April 14, 1990 ** Church of Elvis-P.O.Box 64575-Baton Rouge, LA 70896 **
