May 28 - Ascension of our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ
Today we commemorate the Feast of the Ascension of our Lord God and Savior Jesus Christ.
The Feast commemorates when, on the fortieth day after His Resurrection, Jesus led His disciples to the Mount of Olives, and after blessing them and asking them to wait for the fulfillment of the promise of the Holy Spirit, He ascended into Heaven.
Mr Marios Pasas, Group Leader at the Greek Orthodox Christian Society, will explore the significance of this feast through various hymns and sermons of our Church Fathers.
Miss Thomai Coustas, Member of the Greek Orthodox Christian Society, will join us to reflect on the significance of the life of Saint John the Russian,celebrated by the Church on May 27.
We will also play you hymns chanted by the Sydney School of Byzantine Music along with Greek traditional songs sung by Greek Orthodox Christian Society.
