Pascha Photos

Shortly Before Midnight...

The Midnight Office ("Nocturnes") service begins at 11:30PM on Holy Saturday evening. Aside from the flash for the photos, the church is in darkness at this time, and then the Light of Christ comes, seen as candle-light from the Altar, entering our world through the Royal Doors.

The Procession continues outside, around the church 3 times.
