Holy Friday Retreat

Friday, April 26 @ 10 am

On Holy Friday, we are encouraged to take the day off from school and work. Holy Friday is the holiest day of the year for all Orthodox Christians.

The children will help with the decorating of Christ’s Holy Tomb (Kouvouklion) with flowers. The young people will help with preparing the bay leaves for Holy Saturday morning and the candles for Holy Friday and the Holy Resurrection Service.

Father Jordan will be working with the children during the day, and will have a special discussion at 1:30 pm. The "Taking down of Christ from the Cross" will take place at 2 pm.
