His Eminence at St. Nicholas Cathedral on PaschaHis Eminence at St. Nicholas Cathedral on PaschaThe Very Rev. Thomas Zain, Dean of the St. Nicholas Cathedral in Brooklyn, New York reports:

"Christ is Risen!" "Indeed He is Risen!" This joyous refrain could be heard in St. Nicholas Cathedral in the early morning hours of May 5. After waiting for spring in the Northeast this year, the dark and short days of the season have given way to "the day that knows no night" and the celebration of our Lord's resurrection from the dead. Once again, our father in Christ, His Eminence Metropolitan Philip, returned home to celebrate the Feast of Feasts and the season of seasons in his cathedral, the mother church of the North American Archdiocese.
