Orthodox Easter

Orthodox Easter, also known as Pascha, is the most significant and joyous celebration in the Eastern Orthodox Christian calendar. The date is determined by the Julian calendar and often differs from the Western Christian Easter. Orthodox Easter commemorates the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead. The celebration begins with the Midnight Office and the Paschal Vigil, where the faithful participate in the Midnight Resurrection service. The proclamation "Christ is Risen" echoes through churches, and the atmosphere is filled with joy, light, and the sound of bells. The faithful exchange greetings, share the Paschal kiss, and partake in the Easter Divine Liturgy. The week following Orthodox Easter, known as Bright Week, is marked by continued celebrations, festive meals, and expressions of gratitude for the redemptive message of Christ's resurrection. Orthodox Easter serves as a spiritual renewal and a time for believers to rejoice in the triumph of life over death.
