Holy Week and Pascha 2016

As we make our final approach to Pascha, we follow Christ from His raising of His friend, Lazarus, to His Triumphal Entry on Palm Sunday, to Gathsemane, Golgotha, His triumphant descent into Hades, and finally the empty tomb. On Holy Saturday, the community at St. John the Wonderworker joyously welcomed 4 newly illumined family members home into the Church, and then together everyone proclaimed, "Christ is Risen from the dead, trampling down death by death, and upon those in the tombs bestowing life!" Christ is Risen! Truly He is Risen!
