Easter Card 2012

Resurrection Paska on sepulchre created 25 years ago

Hard to believe 25 years have passed since my husband and I created the sepulchre for our church, St Demetrius the Great Martyr Ukrainian Catholic Church in Toronto, Canada. Just call us Fred & Wilma... 

This feather rock creation is unusual because massive volcanic material makes for a realistic-looking tomb for the Good Friday service.The tilted board was designed to hold the "plaschennytsia", a painted canvas with Jesus Christ laying in the tomb. The flip side was that it could not be quickly disassembled on Easter Sunday. The 'rushnyk' ritual cloth with the 'Paska' bread surrounded by 'pysanky' Easter eggs was our pastor's clever solution.

May the blessing and mercy of the risen Lord Jesus Christ, be with you always.

Христос Воскрес! Воїстину Воскрес!
