The Easiest Way to Follow Orthodox Holy Week in both Languages

Happy Easter to all Christians worldwide, but mark your calendar if you are Orthodox, as your Easter this year, falls on Sunday May 2nd, and while most Orthodox have become familiar with a usual one-week delay between Catholic and Protestant Easter, this year happens to be different.

The larger question because of Covid-19, is whether to follow Holy Week services in Church or Online. Most will be online, and the best way to follow the services in Greek and English is with the Holy Week Easter book by Father George Papadeas, available now at patmospress.

Many parishioners and clergy alike, are faced with a difficult task regarding scheduling this important event, whether to hold Holy Week services online or in church, in order to help stemming the tide of the Covid-19 pandemic.

Since 1963, PatmosPress, has published of the “Holy Week Easter” books in Greek & English, and has become the Gold Standard for all Greek-Americans. The Clergy have defined and praised this complete translation as “having saved Holy Week for Greek-Americans”

Fr. George Papadeas is indelibly associated with Holy Week for Greek Orthodox in America. His compilation and translation of the Holy Week services into one compact volume revolutionized the way people understood the services and made it possible for everyone to follow along in both Greek and English on opposing pages. Each of these books have been blessed by Greek Orthodox Clergy and hold a special meaning.

Holy Week is the precursor to the momentous event known as Easter, also called Pascha and Resurrection Sunday, as the oldest and most important festival in the Eastern Christian tradition .

Videos of each day’s services are available Online from the “Greek Orthodox Archdiocese of America” on YouTube at:

We depend upon our leaders to guide us, and abide by the wise decision to “socially distance” and “self-quarantine” ourselves. This commitment to Greek Orthodox faithful in trying to meet their specific needs during this trying time has Patmos Press working 24/7 to supply the necessary books.

- We have all sinned and deserve God's judgment. God, the Father, sent His only Son to satisfy that judgment for those who believe in Him. Jesus, the creator and eternal Son of God, who lived a sinless life, loves us so much that He died for our sins, taking the punishment that we deserve, was buried, and rose from the dead according to the Bible. If you truly believe and trust this in your heart, receiving Jesus alone as your Savior, declaring, "Jesus is Lord," you will be saved from judgment and spend eternity with God in heaven.

What is your response?

If you are not a Christian, and would like to become a Christian. Simply say - "LORD Jesus, thank you for forgiving me of my SINs, today I am deciding to follow you. Accept me into your family, in Jesus name I pray. Amen "
