Orthodox Easter for the year 2028 is celebrated/ observed on Sunday, April 16.


This day celebrates the resurrection of Jesus from the dead on the third day after his crucifixion on Orthodox Good Friday. In the United States the Romanian Orthodox Episcopate Church, Russian Orthodox Church, and Greek Hellenic Orthodox Church celebrate the day along with other smaller Orthodox Churches.


The Orthodox Church uses the Julian calendar to determine their holy days. Easter for the Orthodox Church will always fall sometime between April 4th and May 8th each year.

How to calculate Orthodox Easter date

The date used for Easter was determined at the Council of Nicaea in 325 A.D. It is on the Sunday following the paschal full moon, which is the full moon that falls on or after the spring equinox. Orthodox Easter will usually fall later in the year than Western Christian Easter because Orthodox Easter uses the Julian calendar and the later uses the Gregorian calendar.

Other Countries

Many countries around the world celebrate Orthodox Easter like Romania, Republic of Macedonia, Lebanon, Cyprus, Greece, Ukraine, Bulgaria, and Russia.
