It’s Holy Week in the Eastern Calendar!

It’s Holy Week in the Eastern Calendar! The drama of this week culminates in the Great Saturday Vigil (April 30) and Holy Pascha (May 1). The services that accompany these days are among the most enriching and dramatic Christian celebrations in all of Christendom. Let the Paschal Troparion reverberate throughout the earth!
Christ is risen!
