Covid-19 Digital Toolkit for Parishes

The Greek Orthodox Archdiocese is developing a series of digital toolkits to aid parishes during the COVID-19 crisis.

 

In the early Church, the feast of Epiphany (also called Theophany) was THE big holy day apart from Pascha: Christmas as we know it was not celebrated at first. But the commemoration of Christ’s Baptism was observed, and with grand festivities. Nowadays we hang up our lights for December 25, but in the early centuries, January 6 was the Feast of Lights, when candles and lamps were hung aloft in joyous remembrance.
