Blessing of Holy Shroud

On April 20, 2019, following the Divine Liturgy of Lazarus Saturday, we had the blessing of a new Holy Shroud to be used during the upcoming Holy Week and Pascha. The icon depicts Christ after He has been removed from the Cross, lying supine, as His Body is being prepared for burial. The scene is taken from the Gospel of St. John 19:38-42. The following hymn is embroidered around the edges of the icon: The Noble Joseph, taking down Thy most pure Body from the Tree, wrapped It in clean linen and sweet spices and laid it in a new tomb.

What is the Orthodox Church?

“The Orthodox Christian Church is evangelical, but not Protestant.
It is orthodox, but not Jewish. It is catholic, but not Roman.
It is not denominational, it is pre-denominational.
It has believed, taught, preserved, defended, and died for the
Faith of the Apostles since the Day of Pentecost nearly 2,000 years ago.”
