Lazarus Saturday Liturgy & Retreat - 04/04/15

On Lazarus Saturday we celebrated the Divine Liturgy and we witnessed the Chrismation of Tana and Bryce as they received Holy Communion as Orthodox Christians. Tana and Bryce's sponsors were Sandi & Kevin.

Following the Liturgy we went upstairs to the church hall and began the retreat with the making of Meshe. All of the children were up to their elbows in flour! In all we baked 26 loaves of Meshe. A pizza lunch (courtesy of our Sunday School Director, Mr. Cheeseball) was enjoyed by all. While the Meshe was raising and then baking the children dyed eggs and put together different crafts. The adults prepared the palms for Palm Sunday.  Stephanie, Diane, Entela and Rovena made a basket of crosses to be given to our parishioners tomorrow. Way to go ladies!

All in all a great day!
