Easter Services!


Our celebration of the resurrection begins at 10:30 PM on Saturday, April 15! In the dark, we make a candle-lit procession to the front door of the Church. There we hear the greeting ‘Christ is Risen!’ for the first time and shout in reply, ‘Indeed He is Risen!’ We greet each other this way for forty days. We go into the well-lit church and sing the joyous Paschal Orthros and break the Lenten fast with the Divine Liturgy, and receive the Body and Blood of the Risen Lord. After this service, the priest blesses our Easter baskets, and we go to the parish hall to find the tables sagging with every kind of good food, and we celebrate together until quite late.

Visitors are always welcome! Bring your Easter basket, and join us for the feast of feasts! If you can't make it to the evening service, we continue celebrating the resurrection with Agape Vespers and a picnic beginning at 1 PM on Sunday, April 16.
