Vespers of Holy Friday - Christ is Laid in the Tomb

On the evening of Holy Thursday, in the Vespers service, we carry the Body of Christ to the Tomb, singing of Noble Joseph.

Matins of Holy Saturday - the Lamentations and the Procession with the Burial Shroud (Epitaphion / Plashchanitsa)

We have some lovely photos from this very moving service. Those dazzling lights hovering around the procession are light from the flash reflecting off of raindrops!
