Sunday of the Holy Cross

“In the 11th century, the Muslim Caliph Al-Hakim decreed the closure of all Churches in Egypt for nine years. It was a time of great distress for all Christians. One day, the Caliph was walking through the streets where Christians resided and he heard their voices praising and praying in each house. Then he said, “Open their churches again and let them pray as they please. I wished to close a Church in every street. But today I discovered that when I made this decree, a church was opened in every home.” 

– Fr Stephen

On Sunday, March 22nd, we celebrated the Feast of the Holy Cross, which the Church appoints for the third Sunday of Great Lent.  Here are some photos from today’s service and a short video of the Procession of the Holy Cross.
