On April 15 all the Orthodox Christians celebrated Holy Pascha, feast of the glorious Resurrection of our Lord Jesus Christ.
Celebration at St. George’s Church took place at the early morning. Before that our Rector, priest Igor Tarasov served the Midnight service and transferred the Shroud from the middle of the temple to the altar. At midnight we started Paschal procession around the church. At the end of the procession all the faithful stopped in front of the closed doors of the temple. Fr. Igor began Matins service and sung joyful Paschal troparion: “Christ is risen from the dead trampling death by death, and to those in the tombs bestowing life”. The congregation responded by singing the same hymn. The doors to the temple were opened by the priest, and the procession entered into the church.
Fr. Igor celebrated Resurrectional Matins and Divine Liturgy. At the dismissal he greeted all our parishioners with the greatest holy day of Pascha.
Following the services the Easter food was blessed.
After finishing all the liturgical celebration Rector and parishioners enjoyed very delicious meals at Easter breakfast.
CHRIST IS RISEN! ХРИСТОС ВOСКРЕСЕ!
