Christ the Saviour gathers for Burial Service - 04/10/15

In the afternoon on Friday, April 10 2015,  the community of Christ the Saviour Orthodox Church in Harrisburg, PA gathered for the Burial Vespers, in which we participate in the death of the Son of God upon the Cross. The Body of our Lord is tenderly removed from the Cross, and wrapped in a burial shroud, assisted by the children of our community. Later the Plaschenitsa (Holy Shroud depicting the Body of our Lord) is processed and placed in the Tomb in the center of the Church and venerated by the faithful!
