On the night of April 11-12, 2015, the "Feast Day of feast days," His Grace Bishop Nicholas of Manhattan, Deputy Secretary of the Synod of Bishops of the Russian Orthodox Church Outside of Russia, led divine services at the Synodal Cathedral of Our Lady "of the Sign" in New York. He was joined by the cathedral's clergymen, as the Cathedral Choir sang joyously under the direction of Peter Fekula to a large gathering of worshipers.
After the services, the cathedral sisterhood welcomed everyone to a Paschal trapeza, during which Vladyka Nikolai, congratulating everyone on the great joy of Pascha, expressed his personal gratitude to the clergymen, acolytes, singers, sisterhood and worshipers for sharing their prayers, for their efforts, for the magnificent divine services and the abundant trapeza feast.
Later that day, His Grace performed the Paschal vespers, then welcomed all to his residence for continuing celebration of the Lord's Pascha.
