Here are some photos from Saturday's Vespers (Sunday of the Holy Cross) - my church.  (I got to decorate the Cross! - how honored am I?)

Flowers done, and waiting for Fr. Paul to take in to the Altar


Lying on the Altar Talbe






Lying to the right, is an icon I just bought and had Fr. Paul bless for me.

LOL!  Thanks, biro!  Definitely not a professional photographer.  Just a hobby of mine.

The church was soooooo pretty, it was hard to walk out of it.  I just wanted to linger there for hours.

...as it was, I closed it down!  Cheesy  The candles were put out, then the lights went off....and I was still lurking.  By the time I joined everyone in the hall....there was no more coffee left.   Grin

Visitation by our metropolitan on the 2nd Sunday of Great Lent.  Our altar server, Kenneth Kulmatycki, was ordained as a subdeacon before the Divine Liturgy.

I missed the 4th week of Pan-Orthodox Vespers because I had been terribly sick, however, here's Week 5.

This is Holy Trinity Orthodox Church in Detroit.

Yes, that's Father Anthony.  Here was here for our Lenten mission, this past Saturday.  I love serving with Father.

The interior painting and fixing of the dome was completed this past week and the church looks just wonderful.  When I get a chance I'll post photos of the work that was done, along with what the interior looked like before.

Palm Sunday at my parish.





It was also the Sunday for our First Confession children.



He's up on his tippy toes...



The kids got to hold candles during the reading of the Gospel.

Holy Saturday.  We bless baskets after Divine Liturgy.  It is supposed to be for the elderly and those with young families, who will not be able to attend in the evening and in to early Sunday morning.  They are forbidden from eating from the baskets until after Midnight, and Christ is Risen.

I once again, gave the kids candles to hold during the reading of the Gospel.







The homemade butter lamb caught my eye....I didn't even notice the rings, until I was looking at the photos...do you see them?

You only posted it yesterday.  Folks weren't online on Sunday.  Give them some time.  Cheesy

I thought the photos were very nice.  I was able to view them.

So, did you take these photos this weekend?  If so, was there some particular event that everyone was out at the cemeteries?

I know we have St. Demetrios next Saturday, perhaps you are on new calendar?

In my father's home church and cemetery (can the be something called "home cemetery")?

Cemetery dates back to XVth century. Of course there is nothing such old left but one can assume some pieces may come from the XVIII one.
