Christ is risen!

Thank you for celebrating Holy Week and the Pascha of our Lord with us!

Christ is risen! Indeed He is risen!
Χριστὸς ἀνέστη! Ἀληθῶς ἀνέστη!
!المسيح قام! حقا قام
Христосъ воскресе! Воистину воскресе!

The doors of the altar are left open for all of Bright Week, just as the veil in the Temple was rent in two, the gates of Hades are burst asunder, and Christ's empty tomb is opened. Truly, He is risen!

We'll continue celebrating Wednesday night 
with an ICE CREAM SOCIAL around the FIRE PIT! 
Activities after Vespers @ 6 PM.

Make plans to join us Saturday, March 31 for Lazarus Saturday festivities! As Great Lent turns into Holy Week, we celebrate the resurrection of all humankind at the raising of Lazarus. 
After the services on Saturday, we will have a fasting-brunch and picnic, easter egg hunt, and outdoor games and crafts for families and children! Families are encouraged to bring picnic blankets or lawn chairs, and 10 filled eggs per child.

Then join us on Sunday for our traditional Palm Sunday service, followed by a catfish feast!

By raising Lazarus from the dead before Your passion, You did confirm the universal Resurrection, O Christ God! Like the children with the palms of victory, We cry out to You, O Vanquisher of death; Hosanna in the Highest! Blessed is He that comes in the Name of the Lord!
