As we celebrate Thanksgiving this year, we are reminded that, even in difficult times, there are endless reasons to thank God.  Personally, we are very aware of the blessing of still having a monastery after the recent fires and of staying healthy in these times of COVID.  Even more so, we are grateful to God for you our friends, who are always there for us, even in these tough times.  And yes, these are tough times, but Christ’s light shines brighter in darkness.  As we journey towards the Nativity, may we all let His light confront and banish the darkness in our own souls so that we, along with the Christmas star, may be lights leading others to our Incarnate God!

The Three-Day Pascha Series

The Paschal Triduum of Holy Friday, Holy Saturday, and Holy Pascha is a time of wonder and excitement for Orthodox children. The services engage everyone in the saving events of our Lord’s Passion, Death, and Resurrection through the rituals we see, the hymns we hear, and the things we touch, kiss, taste, and smell.

The Three-Day Pascha Series, now presented as one book, unites the Three Days through poetry and painting, expressing for children (and adults) the single mystery of the Passover of Christ, and of us in Him, from death to life and from earth to heaven. Mother Melania’s poetry and Khouria Bonnie Gillis’s artwork, will remind children of what they have seen and done in church on each of these days and will invite them to think about and enter into the wonder of those days on their own level.
