Photo-report on the celebration of Holy Pascha at the Synodal Cathedral
The spiritually-inspiring celebration of Holy Pascha at the Synodal Cathedral of Our Lady "of the Sign" in New York drew a large number of worshipers and was led by His Grace Bishop Nicholas of Manhattan, Deputy Secretary of the Synod of Bishops of the Russian Orthodox Church Outside of Russia. Vladyka Nicholas was joined by His Grace Bishop Irenej of the Serbian Orthodox Church, the cathedral clergymen and those of St Sava Serbian Orthodox Cathedral. The Serbian clerics and worshipers are temporarily serving in other churches as their cathedral is undergoing reconstruction after a devastating fire a few years ago.
After Paschal matins, Bishop Nicholas celebrated night-time Liturgy, while Vladyka Irinej celebrated morning Liturgy, attended by his Serbian flock. The two hierarchs shared a trapeza afterwards with their flocks.
