On the 5th Sunday of Pascha, we remember Christ’s conversation with the Samaritan woman by Jacob’s well, in which he promises that “whosoever drinketh of the water that I shall give him shall never thirst; but the water that I shall give him shall be in him a well of water springing up into everlasting life” (John 4:14).
This year, the 5th Sunday of Pascha falls on St. George’s day, so we will also celebrate the memory of the Great Martyr George, whose victorious struggle serves as a wonderful example of this “living water” active in our lives.
As in all recent weeks, we fast on Wednesday and Friday, but may use Wine and Oil in honor of the Resurrection.
Saturday, 5/5: Vigil, 5pm
Sunday, 5/6: Liturgy, 10am, followed by trapeza and church school
Mark your calendars! The Ascension of Christ is celebrated on Thursday, May 17th. We will have Vigil on Wednesday evening, and Liturgy (fairly early) on Thursday morning.
