NEW SUNDAY

This Sunday, April 11, is New Sunday (Nor Giragi). Easter Sunday is followed by a period of fifty days (Hinoonk) from the Resurrection to Pentecost (Hokekaloosd) dedicated to the glorification of the Resurrection. Each of the seven Sundays of Hinook has a special name. This Sunday is also called Second Easter (Grgnazadig), which literally means “Easter repeated,” because it is the eighth day of Easter and a day similar to Easter in readings and hymns.
