Life at Holy Cross/Boston

Christ is Risen! Pascha 2011

Posted by on April 30, 2011 at 4:57 pm

TweetI had a great Holy Week and Pascha this year. This was one of the best ones I’ve had since my very first, and maybe also my first at seminary. I went for most of the services to Holy Resurrection in Alston, my semi-regular parish in Boston. The church is a Bulgarian parish, so they use the Slavonic style and everything is in English. It’s a lot like the chanting I knew in Taiwan. Since they’re a tad conservative I didn’t feel comfortable carrying around a camera, but I did take a brief video with my phone. For Agape Vespers, I went to the chapel at Holy Cross. Then to the barbecue afterwords. Some of the students started a Greek dance and I grabbed my camera. I took some of the best photos of my life. I had some spectacular close-ups and brilliant action shots. The girls looked beautiful and they guys looked alright, too. These were great photos. At least, I choose to think of them that way. We’ll never know, because when I pulled the camera from my eye to get a preview I realized I hadn’t put a memory card in the camera. Oh, well. Here’s the video.

Holy Week at Holy Cross/Hellenic College

Posted by on April 14, 2009 at 6:21 am

TweetI hope everyone will enjoy these pictures I’m posting from Holy Week. I

wasn’t able to add much to the services, so this is my offering for the

week. I’m sure I must have annoyed everyone moving around the chapel and taking flash shots in people’s faces, but I tried hard to take picture that would be memorable, pictures that said something about what was going on. It’s not easy to get a good shot. Photography is becoming a throw away art. Everyone with a cheap phone has a camera and any picture can be touched up in Photoshop. Pictures are often uploaded to Facebook to be glanced at and forgotten. But to make something beautiful takes care and patience. It says a lot about you, the way you see other people.
