Lazarus Saturday and Palm Sunday

On Lazarus Saturday, Divine Liturgy was followed by the procession from the church to the lake where willow branches were blessed and distributed. On Palm Sunday, the blessing and distributing of the willow branches were done in the church.
This year, as well as the last, we had the egg dying – pysanka workshop at the monastery hall. Over 70 children participated. We thank everyone who helped and contributed over these two days – the Fitza and Hausser families for donating the pussy willow branches and also the Fitza family for setting up the pysanka workshop and all the New Gracanica teenagers who helped with the egg coloring.
