Christ the Saviour Gathers Outdoors for the Feast of Feasts - 05/01/2021
Christ is Risen! Христос Воскресе!
Χριστός Ανέστη! المسيحقام!
Late Saturday evening (May 1), and “while it was still dark” into Sunday (May 2), our community gathered for the “Feast of feasts, and Holy Day of holy days” - Great and Holy Pascha! This year, due to indoor gathering restrictions, we gathered under a large tent... glory to God for all things! Abundant thanks to all who worked so tirelessly to make it possible - Christ is Risen!
(Ode 1 - Canon of Holy Pascha)
It is the day of Resurrection, let us be illumined O ye people, Pascha, the Pascha of the Lord, from death unto Life and from earth unto Heaven has Christ our God led us singing the song of Victory! Let us purify our senses, and we shall behold Christ, radiant with the light ineffable of the Resurrection, and shall hear Him say in accents clear, rejoice as we sing the song of victory. For meet it is that the Heavens should rejoice, and that the earth should be glad, and the whole world, visible and invisible, should keep the feast, for Christ, the everlasting joy is Risen!
