Holy Week in Jerusalem

Holy Week in Jerusalem

As our Orthodox brothers and sisters walk through Holy Week towards Easter this coming Sunday, the Armenian Apostolic Patriarchate of Jerusalem has posted stunning photos from Palm Sunday, celebrated two days ago in the Church of the Holy Sepulchre.



Find more photos, and a timetable for Holy Week at their Facebook page.

Holy Week observances in the Church of the Resurrection (aka Church of the Holy Sepulchre) are off the scale. Between the Armenians, Greeks, and the Copts, no where are the liturgies done better: including an Easter Vigil on the roof-top with the Copts and the Holy Fire on Saturday afternoon! And, how about that mitre?

Χριστὸς ἀνέστη! Ἀληθῶς ἀνέστη!

The Episcopal Café seeks to be an independent voice, reporting and reflecting on the Episcopal Church and the Anglican tradition.  The Café is not a platform of advocacy, but it does aim to tell the story of the church from the perspective of Progressive Christianity.  Our collective sympathy, as the Café, lies with the project of widening the circle of inclusion within the church and empowering all the baptized for the role to which they have been called as followers of Christ.

The opinions expressed at the Café are those of individual contributors, and, unless otherwise noted, should not be interpreted as official statements of a parish, diocese or other organization. The art and articles that appear here remain the property of their creators.
