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!
