Pre-Easter Service, circa 1965

For close to twenty years after it was built the RMC chapel maintained a pretty robust program of religious and cultural events, including many mainstream (but carefully non-denominational) worship services. This is the program for a beautiful Holy Week service, undated but it must be 1964 or ’65 based on the graduation dates of the student worship leaders. My sense is that these things were well attended. There was certainly a lot of work put into this one:

Bonus: No post tomorrow for Good Friday. And no post next Friday  for Good Friday either.

    This seems to imply that you are Greek Orthodox, Melissa. We have a prominent member of the Armenian Apostolic Church in our class (1960), but their Palm Sunday/Easter calendar is the same as that for western churches. Wiki says they are “part of Oriental Orthodoxy” so I don’t understand that, but I did look it up. Easter is April 21 for them this year.

      Yes, my family is Greek Orthodox. I’m not qualified to discuss intra-Orthodox calendar issues, which are actually Byzantine. I can tell you, though, that there’s no thrill quite like getting your Easter candy 50% off.
