Holy Week on the Forum
« on: April 24, 2013, 06:19:53 PM »
Good day, denizens of OC.net!

It is customary for us to observe a forum shut-down at the end of Great and Holy Week while we remember the Crucifixion and Burial of our Lord, God, and Savior Jesus Christ.

The plan (at least for now) is for the forum to be shut down on Holy Thursday evening at around 11pm US EDT, and for it to re-open on Holy Saturday evening (I'm assuming around 8 or 9pm US EDT) so the Eastern Hemisphere folks can begin passing Paschal messages.

May you all enjoy a spiritually rich Holy Week leading to a glorious and joyful celebration of Pascha!

Met. Meletios of Nikopolis & Preveza, from his ordination.

A blessed Holy Friday and Saturday, and Pascha, to all.  :angel:
He will come again with glory to judge the living and the dead. His kingdom will have no end.
