First Easter for historic Izmir Church

After a hiatus lasting nearly a century, the message of Christ's resurrection will once again sound in the historic Orthodox church of Saint Voukolos (Aya Vukla) in Izmir, which held its first Holy Week services since 1922.

The recently renovated and restored church held its first Good Friday service and procession, through the streets of Izmir the previous day, while the Easter divine liturgy will take place at midnight. The Orthodox community in Izmir will also hold a banquet at the church on Sunday, after the Easter services.
