“Be Thou exalted, O God, above the heavens, and Thy glory above all the earth.”
Thomas Sunday, Commemoration at the Russian Orthodox Cemetery

CHRIST IS RISEN!

On Thomas Sunday, April 26th, 2020, Archpriest Paul Volmensky and a few parishioners went out to the Russian Orthodox Cemetery for the commemoration of the departed souls laid to rest. 

It was not possible to hold our annual general panykhida and pinic due to the Orders of the Sacramento Health Department. However, by mercy of God, prayers were said over many of the graves of our beloved departed ones. Two men were assigned to assure that soical distancing was observed and that those who desired to enter on the cemetery for prayer did so within the limits defined by the Orders.
