EASTERN ORTHODOX CELEBRATE EASTER

Bishop Mark Maymon lights a candle for Renee Ellis during Pascha, or Easter, services yesterday at St. George Antiochian Orthodox Cathedral on Woodley Road. The ritual was part of a Pan Orthodox Agape service, the Vespers of Love. Western Christian churches observed Easter on March 23 this year, five weeks earlier than the world s 300 million Eastern Orthodox Christians, who differ in how they calculate the date.
