We’d like to wish all residents of Eastern North Carolina a blessed Pascha (Easter) with the traditional Orthodox greeting, “Christ is Risen!” The response is, “Truly He is Risen!” This greeting will be used from now until Ascension Thursday, which is the 40th day after Pascha.
At the Easter service in Greenville at Holy Theotokos Church this year, we had a record number of attendees. Some people drove from 30, 60, and even 90 miles away to celebrate with us. One gentleman came from Rocky Mount, which gives us hope that one day there will be an Orthodox Church in that town established to glorify God and bring souls to Christ through His Church. Are you in Rocky Mount and interested in exploring the Orthodox Church? Contact us!
