- Blessing of Paschal Baskets will take place after the Liturgy Saturday morning and then at 9pm, 10pm, 11pm, and after the Paschal Liturgy.

- Please join us after the Paschal service for a fast breaking potluck in the hall, where we can continue the celebration of our Lord’s Resurrection together. This is a wonderful opportunity to share our joy of Pascha and our baskets with our fellow parishioners before heading home.  Please bring a potluck item to share.  Please be sure when you leave for the night, to leave with any leftovers and your dish.

After a long night of services and celebrating we are often very tired and want to return to our homes for some much needed rest without having to stay up even later to clean up our hall after the festivities.  We are asking for a few volunteers who would be available to come in on Bright Monday or later on Sunday to clean up the hall following the Fast breaking. This way we can all enjoy our time together without the burden of cleaning up in the wee hours of the morning.   Please contact Lana Chichkanoff if you are available to help and so we can schedule a time that works for clean up.
