Palm Sunday, Holy Week and Pascha in Photos

This album contains photos of the faces of just some of our living icons at St. Nicholas who made this Palm Sunday, Holy Week and Pascha special. If you have any candid shots to add, please send them to Fr. Thomas. Many of our parishioners have posted photos of the main "scenes" of the week, the beauty of our Cathedral and the hierarchs and clergy celebrating the services, however, these photos are the candid shots of our faithful without whom we would be celebrating in an empty church. God bless you all. Christ is Risen! المسيح قام
