ΣΑΒΒΑΤΟ, 31 ΜΑΡΤΙΟΥ – ΣΑΒΒΑΤΟ ΤΟΥ ΛΑΖΑΡΟΥ
Όλα τα παιδιά της ενορίας μετά των γονέων των, παρακαλούνται να έλθουν και να κοινωνήσουν μαζί. Αμέσως μετά την Θεία Λειτουργία, παρακαλούνται όλοι να παραμείνουν γιά ένα νηστήσιμο πρωϊνό, και γιά να φτιάξουμε τα Σταυρουδάκια για την Κυριακή των Βαϊων.
ORTHODOX EASTER (PASCHA)
This year, Orthodox Christians will celebrate Easter on April 8th. The Orthodox date for Easter is based on a decree of the Council of Nicae, Asia Minor, held in 325 A.D. under Emperor Constantine the Great. According to this decree, Easter must be celebrated on the Sunday following the first full moon of the vernal equinox, but always after the Hebrew Passover to maintain the Biblical sequence of events of the Crucifixion and the Resurrection. The Orthodox Christian Churches have adhered strictly to this formula, but the Easter of other Christian Churches is not necessarily preceded by the Passover.
