Easter Party

This morning, we celebrated the resurrection feast with the church’s children and young adults. Our fathers along with the youth of the church provided a short theme about our special holiday, hymns, a drama, and trivia games. In the evening, it was the youth’s turn to sing hymns, contemplate a word from Sayedna about our own resurrection, and to enjoy games and a barbeque. Akhristos Anesti!!! Alisos Anesti.
