    Photos: Maronite church celebrates Good Friday in Central Maine

    Holy Week, at Saint Joseph Maronite Catholic Church in Waterville and other Maronite churches, is considered an independent Liturgical Season within the Season of Lent. According to Maronite heritage, it starts with "Naheero," or the "Coming to the Harbor" on Palm Sunday evening and is over on Easter Sunday. Some may consider one week too short to be considered an independent season. However, Maronites say the intensity of ceremonies and celebrations, and the deep spirituality found in old Syriac texts, prayers and hymns in that week, make it worthy to be the most important week of the year.

    Photos: Artist teaches ritual Ukrainian egg-decorating process

    The Holocaust and Human Rights Center hosted 25 students for an egg-decorating class at the The Michael Klahr Center in Augusta. The class was led by Maine-based artist Lesia Sochor, a painter who practices the ancient ritual of transforming an ordinary egg into a "pysanka" by decorating it with ancient, often colorful designs steeped in symbolism. Sochor said that she learned to make them from her parents who fled Ukraine in the aftermath of World War II. Images are by Kennebec Journal staff photographer Joe Phelan.
