Local News Coverage Features Kentucky Mission Parish

(Austin Anthony/photo@bgdailynews.com)(Austin Anthony/photo@bgdailynews.com)On April 11, 2015, Holy Saturday, a story by reporter Laurel Wilson was posted in the Bowling Green, Kentucky Daily News. In the piece "Vespers commemorates taking Jesus from the cross," Ms. Wilson wrote about Holy Week observances in the Antiochian parish there, Holy Apostles Orthodox Mission, with Fr. Michael Nasser. 

"An important part of Orthodox Holy Week is the Vespers of Holy Friday, a service to remember the unnailing of Jesus from the cross," the article noted, and quotes Fr. Michael as saying that 'It's easy to think we're doing a re-enactment. That's not what we're doing. We stop and we remember ... where they had to take the nails that had been impounded in the body of Jesus. We weren't there and we were not to imagine that we were, but Joseph and Nicodemus were, and we remember that moment for them.'"
