Archpastoral Message

Archpastoral message of His Eminence Archbishop Elpidophoros to the Faithful of the Greek Orthodox Archdiocese of America

Great Lent, Holy Week, and Pascha Articles

We begin our journey by exploring the history of our modern Paschal traditions in the Orthodox Christian faith. The entire Paschal season, through Lent, Holy Week, and Pascha, is rich with meaning and symbolism as we relive the events leading up to Christ’s passion.

This video is part of a series named "Journey to Pascha" by the Department of Religious Education of the Greek Orthodox Archdiocese of America. The events of Holy Week and Pascha comprise the very heart of the Orthodox Christian faith. These presentations explore the history, traditions, services, and their meanings, of this central period. 

The enlightening interviews, music, hymns, icons, insightful commentary and beautiful visuals will inspire and provoke thoughtful exploration of this definitive period of the Church's liturgical year. Each presentation is followed by a set of questions for exploration and discussion. It is designed to be used by an individual or family, as well as in a group setting such as a parish Bible study or adult church school class.
