The Festival Of Pascha

This year, for some reason, the dates for the Easter holidays coincide in all Christian churches, the Eastern Orthodox religion, the Roman Catholic faith and the Protestant Confession. This coincidence of dates for Easter only occurred six times during the last 28 years, but will happen again in 2011, and also in 2014. For good measure, the Coptic community joins in the same dates, this year, as well. Mind you, there is no Coptic Orthodox Church in Mallorca, nor in the whole of Spain.

In Mallorca, followers of the Eastern Orthodox faith congregate at the Parroquia Ortodoxa de la Nativitat del Senyor (Orthodox Parish of the Nativity of the Lord), which is based at the Església de Santa Caterina de Sena, in Carrer Sant Miquel, in Palma.

In the Eastern Orthodox Church, the celebration of Pascha (Easter) is the supreme festival of the year, centred on the Cross and the resurrection of Christ.

The photo was taken in Palma de Mallorca, Baleares, Spain. The date: January 5th, 2009. The time was 14:05:08.
