A Little “Liturgical Dance”: Orthodox Christians Celebrate Easter in Ghana

Orthodox Christians are known for very traditional — sometimes somber — worship. But the celebration of Christ’s Resurrection is a time of joy and celebration.

Few know how to celebrate this Feast of Feasts as well as the Orthodox Christians in this video filmed in Ghana.

The priest leads the choir in a resounding rendition of “Christ is risen!”, the tradition festal hymn. The singing turns into a “liturgical dance” of sorts, as the choir processes to the front of the church to receive antidoron (blessed bread, not holy communion) at the end of the liturgy.

Check out the video. Have you ever seen anything like it in a parish you’ve visited? Tell us!
