Christ is Risen!
to broadcast Resurrection Service
Flushing, N.Y., April 4, 2012 -- The National Council of Churches, the Greek Orthodox Archdiocese of America, and the Interfaith Broadcasting Commission invite Easter worshippers to witness the Orthodox Christian Resurrection Service and Divine Liturgy of Pascha.
The service, recorded live on Pascha 2011 at St. Nicholas Church in Flushing, N.Y., will be broadcast on many NBC stations on April 8, when Easter is celebrated in most western Christian traditions, and on April 15, when Pascha is celebrated in most Orthodox Christian churches.
The broadcast features Archbishop Demetrios of America as he stands before thousands of faithful who gathered inside and outside the beautiful church.
At midnight, the Archbishop proclaims, "Christ is Risen!" The Divine Liturgy of the Resurrection Witness follows.
The special Easter celebration is produced for the Interfaith Broadcasting Commission in cooperation with the National Council of Churches and the Greek Orthodox Archdiocese.
