Palm Sunday Celebrated at St. Nicholas and St. Marina Church in Brooklyn

April 28, 2021

BROOKLYN – Palm Sunday was celebrated at the St. Nicholas and St. Marina Church in Brooklyn on April 25.

The presiding priest of the community, V. Rev. Archimandrite Meletios Bougas, shared his best wishes with The National Herald: “Our Church enters the Holy and Great Week, a week with a rich liturgical program where we will experience the horrible passions and the Resurrection of our Lord Jesus Christ. This year has nothing to do with last year when we had the great ordeal of the pandemic, which still continues to afflict the world, but fortunately now our churches are open, with the necessary protection measures.”

 “Believers have the opportunity to go to church to receive the palms on the feast of Palm Sunday, to receive the eternal mysteries, to go to church, to worship the crucified Christ, participate in the procession of the Epitaphio, and also to receive the Holy Light so that we can celebrate the Resurrection of our Christ,” Fr. Bougas continued. “I wish all the best to all the Greek community, to those who attend church here in our community, all those who help and good recovery to those who are suffering from the pandemic. Happy and blessed Pascha.”

George Aidiniou, member of the Parish Council, wished for the holy days of Easter to bring to the world hope, optimism, peace, and strength.

Evangelia Koti sent her best wishes to the Greek community for a happy Easter with love and health.

After the Divine Liturgy, the Philoptochos Society served the traditional bakaliero and skordalia to go.
