Great and Holy Pascha 2016

Great and Holy Pascha 2016 - 05/01/16

On Sunday, May 1, our parish celebrated the Feast of Feasts, Great and Holy Pascha, the Resurrection of Our Lord, God, and Savior, Jesus Christ. This year, we were blessed to welcome our diocesan bishop, His Eminence, Archbishop MARK. His Eminence led a Hierarchical Divine Liturgy following the Paschal Nocturns and Matins. After Divine Liturgy, His Eminence blessed the Paschal Baskets followed immeadiately by the Agape Meal.

 

This is the day which the Lord has made. Let us rejoice, and be glad in it! 

 

Christ is Risen! Indeed He is Risen!

Khristos Voskrese! Voisitinu Voskrese!

Christos Anesti! Alithos Anesti!

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. 

More Information >

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.

Daily Readings >

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.
