The entire week following Easter is to be set aside by Orthodox Christians for the celebration of the Resurrection. According to the 66th canon of the Council in Trullo: “From the holy day of the Resurrection of Christ our God until New Sunday (i.e. Thomas Sunday) for a whole week the faithful in the holy churches should continually be repeating psalms, hymns and spiritual songs, rejoicing and celebrating Christ, and attending to the reading of the Divine Scriptures and delighting in the Holy Mysteries. For in this way shall we be exalted with Christ; raised up together with Him. For this reason on the aforesaid days that by no means there be any horse races or any other public spectacle”.

What a glorious and magnificent day God has created for our St. Luke Community! We joyously celebrated Christ’s Resurrection as one family! The incense-filled church, our faithful and guests, the angelic singing of our choir, delicious food, and wonderful children’s activities made this a very joyous Pascha for all! We rejoiced, and we were glad in the understanding that Christ has conquered death, and upon those in the tombs restored life!
