To understand the Last Supper as a Passover dinner, during which Jesus instituted the Most Holy Eucharist, a Seder Supper with explanations will be held on Sunday, March 30, 4:00 pm, at St. Josaphat’s Parish Hall.
A Passover Seder is a service held at home as part of the Passover celebration. It is always observed on the first night of Passover, and in some homes on the second night as well. On both nights, the Seder concludes with a dinner.
The word “Seder” literally means “order” in Hebrew. The name comes from the fact that there are 15 parts of the ritual service, all revolving around the Passover dinner.
Tickets may be purchased from the parish office, or on
Sundays after each Divine Liturgy.
Cost: $20 per adult; $10 for children ages 6-10; children 5 and under – free.
Prayer of Forgiveness
Lord, Jesus Christ, in Your great mercy and love for mankind, You prayed for the forgiveness of those who crucified You, and You taught us to love our enemies, to pray for those who persecute or offend us and to forgive them.
Today, with the help of Your grace, I choose to forgive those who have hurt me in the past, or those who continue to persecute or offend me this day.
Moment of silence.
Remember the persons in silence.
Lord, bless them and guide them according to Your will. Also bless me in my decision to forgive and take away any bitterness and resentment that I have in my heart. May Your forgiveness, goodness and loving-kindness be revealed in all of us, to Your praise and glory.
Remembrance of the departed during the Great Fast

There are many good reasons. The first reason is excellent: God commands us to forgive. It is not an option. “Whenever you stand praying, forgive, if you have anything against anyone; so that your Father also who is in heaven may forgive you your transgressions.” (Mk. 11:25-26). “Peter came up and said to Jesus, “Lord, how often shall my brother sin against me, and I forgive him? As many as seven times?” Jesus said to him, “I do not say to you seven times, but seventy times seven.” (Mt 18:21) Continue reading

Statement: Ministry for Foreign Affairs 19 February 2014, Carl Bildt, Minister for Foreign Affairs (Government of Sweden)
It is a dark day in Europe. On the streets of one of our capitals, people are being killed. Their demands were simple and natural: democracy, reforms and European cooperation. Their desire was, for a long time, the desire expressed by the entire Ukrainian nation. And this was why we in the European Union, through the Eastern Partnership, opened the door to cooperation, trade, reforms and integration. Continue reading
