NFTU RADIO: LIVE Paschal Services Starting at 11:30 PST

Paschal services according to the Byzantine tradition will begin tonight at 11:30 PST with the lighting of the Paschal fire live from the Orthodox Cathedral of the Nativity of the Theotokos, Portland, Oregon. The Paschal service is the culmination of the services of Great Lent and Holy Week for Orthodox Christians throughout the world, marking the Resurrection of Our Lord and the end of the fast.

With the lighting of the Paschal fire, there will be a period up to the procession during which parishioners are quietly lighting candles. Don’t mistake the quiet for a radio malfunction!
