Palm Sunday & Holy Week Schedule

Several changes have been made to the upcoming schedule of services. Please see the PDF below for a full listing.

Please note that we are moving several services to Holy Ascension in Frackville to assist their choir and to share in the joy of Pascha with our Orthodox brothers from across Schuylkill County. These changes are temporary and a regular schedule of services at St. Mary’s will resume after Pascha. Another update will be made shortly regular the resumption of regular Sunday Obednitsas with a deacon.

Pascha Celebrations

Our parish gathered on Good Friday, April 22 for Vespers and Lamentations, including a procession of the Holy Plaschanitsa, led by Fr. Joseph.

Christ is Risen!

The next evening, the Parish gathered to celebrate Nocturns, Matins, and the Paschal Divine Liturgy, followed by the blessing of foods and agape supper. Much joy was had as the long fast of Great Lent was broken!

Bright Monday Feast

On Bright Monday, we gathered again for Divine Liturgy, this time led by Fr. Tim with a few of his sons assisting as altar servers. Afterwards, we enjoyed fellowship and a catered meal.

More photos from these feasts, and from many other local churches, can be found in the Photo Gallery of the Diocese of Eastern PA.
