Great Lent, Holy Week, and Pascha Articles

In this video, we focus on Holy Week as celebrated in the Orthodox Christian faith, as the services guide us through the final days of Christ’s earthly ministry, leading up to His crucifixion.

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.
