Holy Week and Pascha 2021

Holy Week and Pascha 2021

This year’s Holy Week celebrations concluded with the Vespers of Love on Sunday morning, where the Holy Gospel was read in its original Greek, Latin, Chinese, English, French, Korean, Norwegian, Romanian, and Spanish. The Vesper service was presided over by Archimandrite Nikodemos Anagnostopoulos, Chancellor of the Archdiocese, who also joined us for the Resurrection Service the night before, and for the Passion Service on Thursday night. Although social distancing measures limited the number of congregants, it was a great blessing to once again share Holy Week with the faithful, 2020’s services having taken place behind closed doors.

Below are some photographs from the services, most of which were taken by Mr Alexios Gennaris:
