This year, the joyous Paschal greeting “Christ is Risen” was also heard in the city of Side for the first time in 96 years. The Orthodox Christians living there, with the permission of the local Authorities, used a spacious room of the Municipality for their first gathering for worship on Easter day.
The Orthodox Christians in Alanya celebrated for the third time the Feast of Holy Easter at the Church of Panagia Pissidiotissa. The feelings of deep emotion, joy and gratitude towards the Risen Lord cannot be described!
Here are photographic snapshots of the Sacred Sequences, performed during Holy Week and Easter, by H.E. Metropolitan Sotirios of Pisidia at the Holy Monastery of the Metamorphosis Kapyong and in the Cathedral of Saint Nicholas of Seoul, with H.E. Ambrosios, Metropolitan of Korea.
