Deacon Jeffrey Mierzejewski and their family usually celebrate Easter on two Sundays every year. This the deacon and his wife, Kseniya, and their four children celebrated Easter on April 4, and a month later they celebrated it on May 2 year.

Deacon Mierzejewski is just a user of a Byzantine Catholic community that meets at Holy Cross Catholic Church in Austin, Texas, and Kseniya, who is Eastern Orthodox, attends the Divine Liturgy at a nearby church that is orthodox.

But after 35 many years of wedding, the Mierzejewskis have discovered through the compromises that spring from like to accommodate their traditions that are respective celebrating the Pascha (the Eastern Christian term for Easter).

“Generally talking, we celebrate both Paschas,” Deacon Mierzejewski told the enter, “and that means we’d, many years, go right to the event of the Pascha back in Lent for the few weeks. Just about, we negotiate and perform some most useful we are able to.”

The Mierzejewskis’ connection with Easter reflects nearly fifty per cent of a millennium of fractured unity between Catholics and Orthodox Christians in the question of when to commemorate this day of all days within the Christian calendar.
