On Saturday, April 23, our St George community celebrated the end of Great Lent and began our transition to the solemn worship of Holy Week with the joyous and great feast of the Resurrection of Lazarus. As in previous years, this day was marked by an educational Divine Liturgy for the church school participants with Proskomedia (preparatory) prayers being done in the Nave. The faithful present were able to observe and children were able to ask questions about the beginning parts of the service.
After Divine Liturgy our St George church school children were treated to a pancake breakfast courtesy of the Circle of Serbian Sisters president Kathy Tobias. Following their meal, the students enjoyed a morning of short and crafty lessons themed to Holy Week and Pascha. This is an annual tradition for the St George parish – and much loved by all who attend!
