Journey Through Holy Week

Check the website for an explanation of services this Holy Week.

Dyeing Easter Eggs

To the volunteers donating Easter eggs for Pascha: Please bring you eggs in Thursday night or Friday morning and put them in the refrigerator.

Agape Service Pascha Celebratory Dinner

On Pascha Sunday we will come together again after the Pascha service to celebrate Agape Vespers (Sunday, May 1 2015), a very short service followed by a community wide Pascha dinner. This will be good! We’ve done in past years at different homes but this year we will hold it in our new social hall.

Like all dinners however, we need a count. Sign up this Sunday (Palm Sunday) or let us know through the website if you will be attending.

Easter Egg Hunt for the Kids

Plan on an Easter Egg hunt for the kids.

PARENTS: if your children are too young for the Pascha Service, bring them to Agape Vespers instead. The service is short and we still have candles and sing Christ is Risen. The dinner that follows, having fun with their friends, the Easter egg hunt and more is crucial for forming their self-identity as Orthodox Christians at their young age.
