8:30 am

St. Marys Indian Orthodox Church

1B Bank Rd, Pilning, Bristol BS35 4JG

Our parish remember and pray for all the departed souls and conduct Holy Qurbana on Holy Saturday at 8:30 am .

The body of Jesus is in the tomb but His soul is among the dead to announce the kingdom of heaven. The hour is coming, and now is, when the dead will hear the voice of the Son of God, and those who hear it will Live (St John 5:25). We commemorate the incident of our Lord visiting Sheol and proclaiming the good news to the dead.

Meanwhile, The Disciples, heartbroken at the death of Jesus, observed the Jewish Sabbath in sorrow. They did not remember the promise of Jesus that He would rise. We cannot forget His promise.

Tonight in our church after sundown we gather for the Great Easter Service where we will experience Jesus rising from the dead. We gather in darkness and see the light which reminds us that Jesus is light in the darkness. He is the light of the world. We enter into the church and attentively participate in the Services and listen to God’s word describing God’s saving work of the past.

He Lives! Our Vigil ushers in an Easter joy that never ends!
