404- May 5th- A Different Easter Day

Christ Has Risen!

This year, the Eastern Orthodox Church’s Easter religious holiday was celebrated five weeks later than most other Christian Church’s.

The reason is due to the fact that our church works off a different calendar than most other Christian denominations.

And this year on our calendar, May 5th was Easter Day, or “Pascha”- the New Passover.

A calendar from October 1582 removing 11 days from the 5th to the 14th

“The Way of the M” will be a one-day walking pilgrimage on May 26, Mother’s Day across France.

The purpose of this annual event is to recognize, and thank the Virgin Mary for her intercessions to Our Lord Jesus Christ.
