In this week of celebration over the first Commencement here at our School in three years, we find ourselves in a unique week in the life of the Church – that of Mid-Pentecost. This halfway point between the Rising of the Lord and the Descent of the Holy Spirit reminds us powerfully of the reality of both Pascha and Pentecost, for we experience them both in every Divine Liturgy.
