For he is the one who died for us and came back to life again for us and 
               is sitting at the place of highest honor next to God, pleading for us there in heaven.

                      HOLY WEEK 2015

                     2015 Easter and Pascha (Orthodox Easter) Season

As you know, the Orthodox church calendar differs from that of the Western Christian calendar.   In 2015, Orthodox Palm Sunday is April 5 and Orthodox Easter (Pascha) is April 12, one week later than churches on the Western calendar.  Since Pascha events begin with Orthodox Palm Sunday (on Western Easter), Pascha events and services are listed separately, following the Easter Week Service Times below.
