Saint Mary of Magdala

Saint Mary of Magdela is far more than just one of the Myrrhbearing Women the church remembers on the Third Sunday of Pascha; her life is of such great magnitude that it is referred to as the Primacy of Mary. That Mary of Magdala is venerated in the Orthodox, Roman Catholic, Lutheran, several Protestant churches, and even in the Baha’i Faith tradition, speaks of her prominence.

Christ Risen.

The community at Holy Trinity celebrated its Holy Week services and Holy Pascha with great solemnity and prayer. At each service, our choir sang prayerfully and with great joy. The responses for the Matins of Holy Friday was sung by four students from the University of Conecticuts's Orthodox Christian Fellowship. Their voices served to uplift all of us.

The Burial Service and Internment of our Lord was served on Holy Friday, followed by several members of Holy Trinity going to Holy Confession. Our community gathered again on the morning of Holy Saturday, then again on the night of Holy Pascha, followed by a festive Agape Meal.

In addition to our outstanding choir, our community was well served in the altar and during Holy Week by Dr Chet Andrzejewski, Evan Zadrozny, and the Fetzko twins, Alex and Anna.

Truly, He is Risen.
