May 19/June 1 On the last day of the feast of Pascha, the Acting First Hierarch of the Russian Church Abroad, Metropolitan Mark of Berlin and Germany, led the festive service of this feast. Observing the “Jerusalem Typicon”, the divine services were celebrated as on the very day of the holiday. At Matins during the singing of the Paschal canon and at the beginning of the Liturgy with the Royal Doors open, Vladyka and the clergy with the paschal three-candles, greeted everyone with the holy greeting “Christ is Risen!” To which the sisters enthusiastically replied: “Truly Risen!”
