Pascha marked this weekend

first_imgTARZANA – The pageantry of an Eastern Orthodox service will be even more heartfelt by Eastern Orthodox Christians who attend Holy Saturday services this morning and Easter services just before midnight tonight. Eastern Orthodox Easter, also known as Pascha, falls on the Sunday after the first full moon on or after the vernal equinox – this year, March 20 – and, most importantly, after the Jewish observance of Passover has ended. Christians celebrating Easter this weekend include members of Orthodox churches established in areas including Jerusalem, Turkey, Syria, Egypt, Albania, Bulgaria, Serbia, Georgia, Greece, Russia, Ukraine, Romania, Cyprus, Poland and the Czech and Slovak republics. The congregation at St. Innocent Orthodox Church in Tarzana, affiliated with the Orthodox Church in America, will be among an estimated 4 million Eastern Orthodox Christians in the United States celebrating Jesus’ resurrection this weekend. AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MOREOregon Ducks football players get stuck on Disney ride during Rose Bowl event“The message of Easter is the whole reason why Jesus Christ came into the world. It gives us the full meaning to everything that Jesus did,” said the Very Rev. Nicolas Boldireff from St. Innocent Orthodox Church. “It shows us we can rise again.” Boldireff said newcomers to an Eastern Orthodox Easter service likely will be struck by its uniqueness. Among the impressions are the smell of pine and rose incense, a choir and clergy chanting during the entire service, children carrying icons in a procession, the custom of the faithful of standing during the service and the symbolism of one altar candle’s light being passed from parishioner to parishioner until the darkened church sanctuary is aglow. “During Lent, there is a feverish activity for putting your soul together. We `make up’ with people. There is even a day, `Forgiveness Sunday,’ that comes before Palm Sunday,” said Walter Zmed, a 22-year parishioner at St. Innocent Orthodox Church. “We not only clean up our houses but we clean up our minds before Easter. Our fast we don’t eat meat or dairy products during Lent is very important. We give up eating certain foods and we try to give up bad habits,” he said. Dyeing eggs red and eating lamb and special pastries for Easter are some Eastern Orthodox traditions. The Holy Saturday service this morning will use readings from the Old Testament on prophesies about conquering death. Jesus in the tomb and his descent into Hades, where he finds and resurrects Adam, will be the centerpiece of the service. Boldireff will bless Easter baskets which can include sausages, dyed eggs, wine, a sweet yeast bread called kulich and a molded sweet cheese called paskha – at 6 and 11 p.m. today as well as at the conclusion of the Easter service Sunday. “The reason for the almost-midnight Easter service is because we want to celebrate the resurrection of Christ at the earliest possible moment,” said Bernard Wilson, a subdeacon and chairman of the Parish Council at St. Innocent Orthodox Church, where he has been a member for 22 years. “It is an elaborate and joyful service. We’ll read part of the Gospel, John: 1-17, in different languages – French, Russian, English, Romanian, Spanish, German, Latin and Irish Gaelic,” he said. St. Innocent Orthodox Church is an English-speaking parish with Slavic influences, said Wilson, a retired chief of Los Angeles International Airport Police. Throughout the Easter service, Boldireff will chant “Christ is risen” in various languages and parishioners have made it a tradition to reply, “Indeed he is risen” in the various languages of their ancestors. Boldireff said many people might be confused about the beliefs and customs of the Eastern Orthodox Community. But he pointed out that there hasn’t been an Ecumenical Council meeting since the year 787. “Our living tradition has been unaltered for centuries,” said Boldireff. “We’re the biggest-kept secret.” Holy Saturday service, 9:30 a.m.-noon today. Easter service, 11:30 p.m. today-3 a.m. Sunday. Vespers service, noon Sunday. St. Innocent Orthodox Church, 5657 Lindley Ave., Tarzana.

RELAY FOR LIFE TO HELP LOCAL DONEGAL CHARITIES THIS YEAR

first_imgSince 2012, Relay For Life Donegal, with the fantastic support it has obtained from the people of Donegal, has raised significant monies to help fight against Cancer. This year, they are delighted to be able to help local charities in an unique manner and are now seeking applications from any charity that feels they could benefit from this opportunity.For those of you who are familiar with the wonderful 24 hour event will know, one of the highlights is the Luminaria or Candle of Hope ceremony, which takes place at 10.30pm on the Saturday night. The Candle of Hope bags have been kept in place by filling each bag with sand and this is a huge logistical task for the hard working volunteers both before and after the ceremony.In order to make this task easier, the committee has secured a wonderful sponsorship deal with BWG Foods through their SPAR shops. We approached them seeking tins of food to put in the bags instead of sand and suggested that once the event was over we would donate the cans to local charities that would be in a position to make good use of the tins afterwards.We are delighted to say that they have very kindly donated 5000 cans of food to Relay For Life Donegal for this purpose.We are therefore seeking applications from any charity that would be interested in taking some or indeed all of these cans and turning this extremely generous offer from SPAR to us into an even more beneficial final outcome. If you are interested then please contact either Robert O’Connor, Chairman, Relay For Life Donegal, on 087-2716344 or Seamus Devine, Logistics Officer, on 087-2482775.RELAY FOR LIFE TO HELP LOCAL DONEGAL CHARITIES THIS YEAR was last modified: May 16th, 2016 by StephenShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window) Tags:charitydonegalRelay for Lifelast_img read more
