The Leavetaking of Holy Pascha and the Feast of the Ascension...
We now end our Paschal journey and begin the celebration of another great feast of the Holy Church: The Ascension of our Lord.
Troparion — Tone 4
O Christ God, You have ascended in Glory, / Granting joy to Your disciples by the promise of the Holy Spirit. / Through the blessing they were assured / That You are the Son of God, / The Redeemer of the world!
Kontakion — Tone 6
When You had fulfilled the dispensation for our sake, / and united earth to heaven: / You ascended in glory, O Christ our God, / not being parted from those who love You, / but remaining with them and crying: / “I am with you and no one will be against you!”
Rev. Fr. Vincent and Pani Christyn would like to wish everyone - our parish, our visitors, and our friends - a very Blessed and Joyous Pascha! May you find the love, joy, and peace of Christ on this Feast of Feasts! Thank you all for your love and support. You are always in our prayers.
We are pleased to announce the launch of our YouTube channel.
