Philadelphia, PA – The Midnight Office of Pascha took place at Evangelismos Greek Orthodox Church last night. Father Alexandros took the parishioners and the community through the service that went into Sunday morning. At midnight, children of the parish came to the altar where Father Alexandros shared the flame and then passed it to those attending.
The crowd then gathered outside where the ceremony continued in both Greek and English for all those to share. A fireworks display has become a traditional form of celebration that continued last night.
