From Maggie on Orthodox Holy Saturday 

My friend told me there will be a parade on Henry St – can you confirm the details?

I phoned the Holy Trinity Russian Orthodox Church at 416-265-5651. A nice lady there said there would be an outdoor procession at Saturday midnight, Sunday May 5, which would last about 45 minutes. This is listed on the church’s website as “12:00 AM — PASCHAL CROSS PROCESSION, MATINS, DIVINE LITURGY.” The web-site is http://holytrinity.ws/en/ and you can see the church’s schedule for the Orthodox Easter weekend there.

This is a beautiful church. But as is traditional with Russian Orthodox churches, there are no seats (except in the balcony). It is at 23 Henry Street. The nearest subway is at College and University Avenue. I hope this is helpful. Ruth
