Our God Almighty established the position of women in the world by appointing The Virgin Mary to carry and care for His only begotten Son.
Our Lord Jesus Christ followed this by holding His Mother and other women around Him in high esteem. It was these women, who today we call Myrofores, that first received the Good News of the Resurrection and carried it to the rest of the disciples and the whole world.
The Myrofores came to the tomb of Jesus Christ to anoint His Holy Body with fragrant spices and myrrh, while the rest of the disciples were in hiding in “the fear of the Jews “. The women were fearless and prepared to perform the duty that their love for Christ dictated to them. There were Roman orders that prohibited anyone from going near the Tomb. When they arrived at the burial sight the Tomb was open and empty because our Lord, was resurrected, just as He had said.
The young ladies of our Church have commemorated the role of the Myrofores during the Paschal services. We all have observed their serious and dedicated way in performing this blessed mission and we, united as one family, are extremely proud of them. They continue to serve our Lord throughout the year by helping the Church Board in the Narthex and around the church during The Divine Liturgy on Sundays and other Feast days.
