Dear Brothers in Christ,

Christ is Risen! May the Light of our Lord’s Resurrection shine in the souls of all people and His joy fill our hearts. I pray that His peace will prevail on Earth.

I would like to thank wholeheartedly the Orthodox Missionary Fraternity for their new donation for the immediate needs of our two girls’ and boys’ orphanages. As you know, these little children were literally collected from the streets. I wish we could take more within the protective bosom of the Orthodox Church. I earnestly apologize for not being able to send more frequent updates. The spirit is willing but the flesh is weak.

So here, thank God, the atmosphere on Easter Week and on Easter Sunday was beautiful; simple and full of devout reverence. Until Good Friday the services had been conducted at the Orphanage Church, but on the night of the Resurrection we went to Calcutta to celebrate all together at the Greek Church of the Transfiguration of our Savior Jesus Christ.

On Easter Sunday we had a love feast at the Orphanage. I was very tired with the preparations and the coordination, but the happy faces of the children were the best reward for me. That’s all my news for now. May God always keep you in His loving care. Lots of Easter wishes, greetings, love and thanks to all Fraternity members.

With love in Christ
Sister Nectaria
