Orthodox Christians greet each other saying “Christ is risen!” during the forty days after our Lord’s resurrection. This is in response to the forty days Christ continued to teach the Apostles until His Ascension.

The Ch​u​rch is wonderful in the way She can ebb and flow with feasts and fasts. We journeyed for 40 days during Lent in preparation for Holy Week and then Pascha. And now we are in a celebratory phase until Pentecost. But people forget, neglecting to enjoy the times set aside to rejoice. This is the time to rejoice.

Enjoy the following video of the sister trio Eikona, and their recording of ​”​Christ is Risen,​”​ with OCN’s Fr. Chris Metropulos, and various artists singing the Resurrection Hymn in different languages.

    Eikona is three sisters who love to chant. Presvytera Stacey Dorrance, Presvytera Marika Brown, and Chrysanthy Therianos started their ministry over 28 years ago, at the urging of their husbands and in answer to the question, “What are you doing to use your talents for the Church?” Born and raised in Denver, Colorado, they grew up in the community of the Assumption Greek Orthodox Cathedral. They were raised in a loving, musical home where church attendance was not optional, but rather, an extension of their parents’ love for music and the church. Each sister has four children, many married and starting families of their own. Their mission is to bring beautiful English Byzantine Chant to the world. Their love of liturgical worship and desire to grow in their own faith inspires them to continue their music ministry. Presvytera Stacey is both the co-chanter and assistant choir director in her parish of St. Catherine’s, in Greenwood Village, Colorado. She is also Chair of the Byzantine Music Education Committee of the National Forum as well as a Chant teacher specializing in helping parishes form Byzantine Choirs across the country (and even in Australia), via Zoom. Presvytera Marika is head chanter at her parish of Sts. Peter and Paul in Boulder, Colorado, as well as a host to many of their parish ministries. Chrysanthy is the choir director at the Cathedral of the Assumption of the Theotokos in Denver, Colorado, as well as a chanter. She is the President of the Metropolis Music Ministry, a composer of music, and an Ace Bowler!
