Holy Week and Great and Holy Pascha 2014

On April 14-April 20, our parish celebrated Holy Week and Great Holy Pascha. This week was very joyous and had a massive adentence for the services. We celebrated Bridegroom Matins and Presanctified Liturgy for the first three days. On Holy Thursday, we celebrated the Matins of Holy Friday. On Holy Friday, we celebrated the Vespers of Holy Friday and Matins of Holy Saturday. On Holy Saturday, we celebrated the Vesperal Divine Liturgy. Finally, on Great and Holy Pascha, we celebrated the Nocturns, Matins, and Divine Liturgy. Following liturgy, the Blessing of the Baskets and Agape Meal was held.

"This is day the Lord has made, let us rejoice and be glad in it!"

Christ is Risen! Indeed He is Risen!

The Mission of The Orthodox Church in America, the local autocephalous Orthodox Christian Church, is to be faithful in fulfilling the commandment of Christ to “Go into all the world and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit…”

St. Mark's Orthodox Church is part of the Diocese of Eastern Pennsylvania, which is presided over by The Most Reverend Mark (Maymon), Archbishop of Philadelphia and Eastern Pennsylvania. Our mission is bringing the joy of Christ's resurrection to those who have never heard the Good News, and to strengthen and encourage the faithful who reside within Wrightstown and the local area.

The Holy Scripture is a collection of books written over multiple centuries by those inspired by God to do so. It is the primary witness to the Orthodox Christian faith, within Holy Tradition and often described as its highest point. It was written by the prophets and apostles in human language, inspired by the Holy Spirit, and collected, edited, and canonized by the Church.

Holiness or sainthood is a gift (charisma) given by God to man, through the Holy Spirit. Man's effort to become a participant in the life of divine holiness is indispensable, but sanctification itself is the work of the Holy Trinity, especially through the sanctifying power of Jesus Christ, who was incarnate, suffered crucifixion, and rose from the dead, in order to lead us to the life of holiness, through the communion with the Holy Spirit.
