Christ is Risen! Pascha 2010 pt.2

Here's the church hall all set for the big feast after vespers on Sunday afternoon:

Bishop Iriney was there, he used to be a priest at our church:

Here are most of the people that went up to read the Gospel in different languages. My mom (on the left) read it in Swedish, there was also French, English, Slavonic, Hungarian, Polish, German and Catalan (Fr. Paul is from Catalonia). We tried to find someone to read it in Greek but didn't.

Then I went on the internet for a bit and realized it was already 6:30 and should get ready soon because my dad was going to drive me back to Montreal. So I packed up and we set off. It's about an hour and a half, I took these pictures on the way:

Oh and here's some pretty moss that was growing on a twig I found the day before:
