Kondratick, Chancellor of the Orthodox Church in America, and the entire staff of the OCA Chancery, extends its best wishes to our beloved primate, His Beatitude Metropolitan Herman, the hierarchs, clergy, monastics, and faithful on the occasion of the Feast of Feasts, the glorious Resurrection of Our Lord, God and Savior Jesus Christ, which is celebrated on April 27, 2003.
Metropolitan Herman celebrated Holy Week services at Saint Nicholas Cathedral, Washington, DC, where he is also celebrating the services for Holy Pascha. Photographs of the services at the cathedral will be posted on the OCA web site on May 1, 2003.
The Archpastoral Paschal Message of His Beatitude, Metropolitan Herman, primate of the Orthodox Church in America, is also available on the OCA web site.
“We pray that the peace of the Risen Lord will fill the hearts of every member of the Church on this glorious feast, and that the never-ending light of Christ’s Resurrection will continue to illumine our faithful now and in the joyous days to come,” Father Kondratick said. “Christ is Risen! Indeed He is Risen!”
