The Orthodox Church is so rich in its variety of services. At no time is this better shown than during Great Lent. Here are some brief explanations about the services offered in our parish during this period.
THE LITURGY OF ST. BASIL is celebrated on the Sundays of Great Lent (9:00am). This Liturgy is much like the Liturgy of St. John Chrysostom. However, it contains many more lengthy prayers which stress repentance and forgiveness, two major themes stressed to the faithful during Lent.
Let us find the time during Lent to participate in these services with faith, reverence and love. Let us contemplate and make a sincere effort to come nearer to the Mystery of Salvation and fully feel the Resurrection of our Lord. Then we may be sure that our faith will grow stronger and deeper; our love more fervent; and our life more holy and perfect.
