CHRIST IS RISEN !!!
TRULY HE HAS RISEN !!!
FEAST DAY CELEBRATION
On Wednesday, May 20th, the Great Vespers Service with Artoklasia will be chanted in honor of our Patron Saints, beginning at 7:00pm. Following the service of this evening, our Philoptochos Society will serve a special coffee fellowship in the Cultural Center.
On Thursday, May 21st, there will be a dual festal celebration taking place since the Feast of the Ascension of our Lord and the Feast Day of SS. Constantine and Helen fall together this year. Orthros will be chanted at 8:00am and Divine Liturgy will be celebrated immediately after. Following the Liturgy, our Philoptochos Society will host another coffee fellowship in honor of the Feast Day of our Cathedral’s Patron Saints.
The thing that makes the Church is, of course, common faith in Jesus Christ and His Gospel, but also the Church Services, which give the faithful the opportunity to gather and show that they really do believe in Jesus Christ and are members of His Church. Let us honor not only our Patron Saints, but the Ascension of our Lord, one of the Twelve Major Feast Days of our Orthodox Faith, with our attendance and prayers.
Let us all join in the singing of the Kontakia for each Feast – Ascension: “Having fulfilled the dispensation for us, and uniting the earthly with the heavenly, You ascended in glory, O Christ our God, in no way separating Yourself, but remaining inseparable, and calling out to those who love You: I am with you, and none can be against you.”
And for Ss. Constantine and Helen: “On this day Constantine and Helen his mother expose to our veneration the Cross, the awesome Cross of Christ, a sign of salvation to all people and standard of victory: a great symbol of conquest and triumph.”
