Note on Partaking of Holy Communion at
evening Liturgy: Please keep in mind and practice the rule of abstaining from any drink or food

hour or two before the beginning of Liturgy.
Easter Flowers/Epitaphio Donations
The Epitaphio Committee Members are in charge this year once again for decorating our Church
for these beautiful and inspiring Lenten / Holy Week / Easter services. Decorating our Church during this special Easter season
is a very important and quite sentimental tradition carried through the years by all Greek Orthodox Christians. It help us
to open our hearts, to feel our Lord's Passion and rejoice for His Resurrection. Please consider making a donation to help
us decorate our Church during Lent, Holy Week and Easter. Your contribution will be greatly appreciated and will be TAX DEDUCTIBLE!
You can donate online or by check. Checks should be be made out to GOPLC (Greek Orthodox
Parish of Loudoun County) and please write "Epitaphio Flowers" in the memo section. You are all invited to join
us on Holy Friday morning to decorate the Epitaphio. If you have any questions please contact Mariana Korulaki (571) 432-7678.
On the Sunday before the Feast of
Great and Holy Pascha and at the beginning of Holy Week, the Orthodox Church celebrates one of its most joyous feasts of the
year. Palm Sunday is the commemoration of the Entrance of our Lord into Jerusalem following His glorious miracle of raising
Lazarus from the dead. On Sunday 24 April, our Sunday School is sponsoring a Fish Meal whose proceeds will benefit our GOPLC
building fund; in addition to ordering the meal for you and your family, our Sunday School is encouraging all parishioners
to purchase one more meal which will be donated to others at the Loudoun Homeless Shelter. If you would like to help please
contact Denise Lansdell, email@example.com, and Ergini B. Martnishn, ergini@aol.
