Pascha: The Resurrection of Christ

Aired 2011-12. Presented by the National Council of Churches USA; Produced by the Greek Orthodox Church This program offered the viewer an opportunity to witness portions of the services leading to Orthodox Christian Pascha, featuring highlights of Holy and Great Week and focused on the deeply moving and ancient services that recount the Gospel narrative leading to the death and the Resurrection of Christ.  A beautiful narration explained the symbolism and relevance of the services and guides us through the week. Videotaped at Greek Orthodox Churches in New York, including the magnificent Archdiocesan Cathedral of the Holy Trinity, the climax of the program was the procession to the exterior of the Cathedral on Holy Saturday where Archbishop Demetrios of America proclaimed the Gospel of the Resurrection and lead the faithful in the joyous hymn, "Christ is Risen!"
