Ukrainian Orthodox Easter service

Sunday 5 May, 12pm at Exeter Cathedral

In partnership with The Devon Ukrainian Association, join us for the second Ukrainian Orthodox Service at Exeter Cathedral, with the traditional Ukrainian blessing of Easter cakes (paska) and Easter eggs. The service will be celebrated in Ukrainian by an Orthodox chaplain, a Ukrainian priest of the Orthodox Church of Ukraine (OCU), Archimandrite Serhiy (Yarovyi) who is traveling to Exeter, especially for this occasion.

A prayer for Ukraine and the Ukrainian army will also be read during the service, ending with a community picnic on the Green which will include games and the singing of Ukrainian spring songs called Vesnyanki.


12pm – 2pm: Service

2pm – 4pm: Picnic, songs and games

All are welcome to attend this service. Ukrainians and their English hosts and friends are especially invited to bring Easter cakes and Easter eggs.
