This month sees the beginning of Great Lent.  I am providing all our usual services for the first week of Great Lent and I would urge everyone to make an effort to be present for at least one of them. 

Because of the fast, the Liturgy is not celebrated on the weekdays of Great Lent but is replaced on Wednesday and Friday by the Liturgy of the Presanctified. I have provided our usual morning celebration on the Wednesday of the first week and an evening celebration (this service begins with Vespers and therefore in essence belongs to the evening) on the Friday, thus I hope giving everyone a chance to attend this immensely important Lenten observance. 

Monday 25th is one of the Twelve Great Feasts, The Annunciation.   On that day there is a Liturgy, but because of the fast, it is celebrated in conjunction with Vespers.  I have again provided an evening celebration in the hope that everyone will be able to share in this joyous Holy Day.
