CHRIST IS RISEN!

CHRIST IS RISEN! INDEED, HE IS RISEN!

Our sunrise Pascha Services celebrating the Resurrection from the dead of our Lord, God, and Savior Jesus Christ was well attended in a full temple of 375 people.

We began in the dark Church, as the Paschal Candle is lit. From this Light all receive light. We bear this light in procession around the Church as the sun begins to rise.

We enter the temple again with joyous singing led by our choir, chanters, and clergy for the service of Pascha Orthros and Pascha Divine Liturgy.

One of our members took a video of our Pascha last year, which was posted on Facebook at:

After the Divine Liturgy, we enjoyed a festive brunch in the parish hall with an Easter Egg Hunt for the Children, and then Agape Vespers.

We wish all of you a Blessed Pascha Season!
