« Cheesfare week - Maslenitsa in the Сhildren's school »


On March 12th the parish school of the Cathedral hosted a celebration of Maslenitsa (Cheesefare Week). After lessons, during their games, children were visited by Archbishop Elisey of Sourozh, who congratulated them on
the forthcoming Great Lent. Children spoke about how they understand the meaning of fasting. Answering the question of Vladyka about how Lent begins, the children did not hesitate to answer: ‘With Forgiveness!’ Archbishop Elisey commented on the good family atmosphere among the pupils, teachers and parents. Together, at the table with pancakes and cakes, they shared the
joy of the approaching spiritual spring - Great Lent.
