This is how the Resurrection will take place tonight !

This year’s Easter was very different for the faithful, as they did not have the opportunity to go to church on Holy Week, nor did they celebrate the resurrection  because of coronavirus. 

The Holy Light arrived normally in our country on the afternoon of April 18, but was not distributed in the Territory . 

Tonight, with a circular issued with the signature of the Protosyggelos of the Archdiocese and Archimandrite Barnabas, Theocharis, and sent to all churches and monasteries, the Resurrection will take place and the faithful will be able to receive the Holy Light. 

“Today, Tuesday, May 26, in the Holy Vigil on the occasion of the celebration of Easter, the Church will celebrate the Resurrection,” the circular reads. In the Diocese of Athens, there will be an Evening Doxology, from 9 pm to 1 am after midnight, during which the Divine Liturgy of Easter will be performed. In fact, Archbishop Ieronymos will officiate.

The Archdiocese urges all churches and monasteries to do the same, if possible, in order to “give the faithful the opportunity to revive the Easter joy, which they were deprived of due to the coronation pandemic.”

“On the evening of Tuesday, May 26, 2020, at 11 p.m. The Midnight Sequence will take place on the night of Holy Saturday. At 11:45 there will be a transmission of the Holy Light and at 12:00 there will be a Sequence of the Resurrection with a solemn bell ringing and then the Article and the Solemn Easter Divine Liturgy “.
