Vigil & Confessions: April 29, Saturday at 6:00 p.m.
Liturgy: April 30, Sunday at 10:00 a.m.
The Third Sunday after Pascha is called the Sunday of the Myrrh-Bearing Women. Commemorated on this Sunday are all those who were witnesses of the burial of the Lord Jesus Christ and of His resurrection: the holy righteous Joseph of Arimathea and Nicodemus, who asked of Pilate the body of the Lord, to bury it, and the myrrh-bearing women who accompanied the Lord to Golgotha, took part in His burial, and then, coming very early to the tomb on the first day of the week, in order to anoint the Body of the Lord with myrrh, were found worthy to see first the angels, who imparted to them the joyous news of the resurrection of the Lord, and then the resurrected Lord Himself.
