ABC Network to air NCC Greek Orthodox special,
Pascha: The Resurrection of Christ

New York, April 7, 2009 -- The National Council of Churches will present its Easter special, Pascha: The Resurrection of Christ, a program highlighting the Orthodox Christian observance of Easter, on ABC affiliates nationwide this month.

The program, produced by Greek Orthodox Telecommunications and sponsored by FAITH: An Endowment for Orthodoxy and Hellenism, highlights Holy and Great Week, focusing on the deeply moving and ancient services that recount the Gospel narrative leading to the Death and Resurrection of Christ. 

Archbishop Demetrios of America leads a procession of the faithful around the church and outside where, following the reading of the Gospel of the Resurrection, they proclaim the joyous hymn “Christ is Risen!” 

ABC and its affiliates make the air time available to National Council of Churches through the Interfaith Broadcasting Commission, of which NCC is a founding member. 

Specific broadcast dates and times span both Easter dates -- April 12 in the western tradition, April 19 in the Orthodox tradition -- and will vary by local station.  You may log on to  www.PaschaABC.goarch.org or www.interfaithbroadcasting.com/onair.aspx?PID=306 for a complete listing (as of April 3) of ABC Affiliates by state.  (See the chart below for a list of stations slated to carry the program.)

Additional showings will be added between now and the broadcast date, so please check listings for exact date, time and station in your area.  You may contact the Greek Orthodox Department of Communications (212-774-0244) if you need assistance.

DVD copies of the program available for pre-sale ($25, includes shipping).  To pre-purchase please contact the Department of Communications at 212-774-0244 or email gotel@goarch.org
