On Palm Sunday, April 24th, the faithful gathered to celebrate the Lord's Entrance into Jerusalem. This joyous feastday included the beautiful divine services, a liturgical procession, and a tasty fish meal. We thank the Lord and all who made this day so festive! As we now enter into the Great and Holy Week, we ask the Lord's blessing to help us pass these all-revered days in godliness, commemorating the savings acts of His voluntary Passion, being incorporated into the mystery of His salvation, and looking to the bright and radiant celebration of Holy Pascha.

Glory to God for a joyous celebration of the feast and an enjoyable day of fellowship!
