Holy Week & Pascha Schedule
Glory to Jesus Christ. Glory Forever! This Sunday we celebrate the Triumphal Entry of Our Lord into Jerusalem. On this day we celebrate Christ's victory over death as foreshadowed by His resurrection of Lazarus from the dead and His reception into Jerusalem by His believers as the awaited for Messiah and King. This day also marks the beginning of His passion, death, and resurrection on Pascha, the ultimate conquering of death by Jesus Christ Himself.
Although we remain confined to our homes we will celebrate the milestones of Christ's passion through His resurrection as always. While we will not be with one another, we can and should remember all of the events of Holy Week in our own daily lives. It is an opportunity to enter into this Holy Week in a very intimate and personally engaged way. IF we do this we can suffer and die with Christ and also experience the joy of His resurrection in each of our hearts.
Below I am posting and attaching the Holy Week Schedule beginning with tonight's Lazarus Saturday Vespers. All of the services of Holy Week will be live-streamed.
Holy Saturday Drive-By Basket Blessing
This Holy Saturday we have received a blessing to do a Drive-by Pascha Basket Blessing. Here's how it will work.
Beginning at 11:30 AM on Holy Saturday - Bring your Pascha basket in your vehicle either in the trunk or in the back seat, wait in line, and stop at the front doors of the Church. Father innocent will greet you and your family, and bless your basket. We ask that you remain in your vehicle and follow directions to exit the parking area. Below you will find the arrival time schedule organized according to the first letter of your last name. If you miss your allotted time, please come anyway - we're just trying to avoid having too many vehicles in the lot at the same time.
