CHRIST IS RISEN!

CHRIST IS RISEN! INDEED, HE IS RISEN!

Our sunrise Pascha Services celebrating the Resurrection of our Lord, God, and Savior Jesus Christ began at 5:30am on April 16, 2017. This brought great joy to the 383 worshippers, which is a record for our parish.

We begin 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.

After the Divine Liturgy, we enjoy 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!

“If anyone is in Christ, he is a new creature; the old things passed away; behold, new things have come” (2 Cor 5: 17).
