PONTIFICAL DIVINE LITURGY AND PARISH FAMILY DINNER: Our hopes for a nice attendance to this special Liturgy and Blessing of the new Icon is

not as great as it should be. It will be a shame for our Bishop Metropolitan Stefan Soroka to be with us for the Divine Liturgy and dinner and not have a full church and hall to celebrate this beautiful occasion. Please, Parishioners be in attendance to help make this something to be proud of. It is your church, and to be together with parishioners is a good way to spend Sunday afternoon. Thank you!

LOTTERY TICKETS: Lottery Tickets for the month of May are still available. If you did not purchase your chance to win, now is the time. Buy a $5 a ticket for 31 days to play with every nightly number. Your help in this fund-raiser is appreciated.

THANKS: We wish to thank Catherine & Charles Halloway, Anna Koprowski, Clara Patrylak and Rose Sivick for their generous monetary donations toward the Parish Family Dinner. God Bless you in many ways.

FLOWERS: The beautiful bouquet of red roses on the Tedipod last week was donated by Mike & Helen Kowalick in memory of Steve Kowalick.

The Easter Cycle

The Easter Cycle lasts from the Sunday of St. Thomas (the Sunday after Easter) to the Sunday of All Saints. The period from Easter to Pentecost embraces fifty days and is called by the common name of Pentecost. The Sundays in the Easter season are each named for the event recounted in the Gospel of that day. These occur in the following order: The Sunday of St. Thomas, the Sunday of the Myrrh-bearing Women, The Sunday of the Paralyic Man, The Sunday of the Samaritan Woman, the Sunday of the Blind Man, the Sunday of the Fathers of the Church, the Sunday of the Descent of the Holy Spirit (Pentecost) and the Sunday of All Saints. The Easter season, i.e., the post-feast of the Resurrection, lasts forty days, that is, to the feast of the Ascension of our Lord.
The Easter cycle includes thirty two Sundays which follow in consecutive order and for this reason are called ordinary Sundays to distinguish them from the festal Sundays which have their own proper epistle and Gospel. There are a few such festal Sundays in the year, as for example, the Sunday before and after the Nativity of Our Lord and the Sunday before and after the Exaltation of the Holy Cross. The ordinary Sundays begin with the Sunday of All Saints and end their cycle on the Sunday of Zaccheus which is followed by the Sunday of the Publican and the Pharisee. The number of these ordinary Sundays depends upon the date of Easter; that is, if Easter comes earlier then there will be more ordinary Sundays, if later, fewer ordinary Sundays.
