“Christ is risen from the dead, by death He has trampled down death, and to those in the tombs He has bestowed life.”
— Apolytikion for Pascha

The services of Holy Week transform us into eyewitnesses and direct participants in the awesome events of the Passion and Resurrection of Jesus Christ. In readings taken from both Old and New Testaments, in hymns, processions, and liturgical commemoration, we see the fulfillment of the Messianic prophecies, and the mighty acts by which God Himself, in the person of Jesus Christ, grants us forgiveness for our sins, and rescues us from the pain of eternal death.

For dates and times of services and events through Great Lent and Holy Week please see our Church Calendar.
