10 a.m. Divine Liturgy on Sundays

Saturday, August 6, 10 a.m. Liturgy of The Holy Transfiguration of Our Lord, God and Saviour Jesus Christ
Christ's Transfiguration is the image of the future state of the righteous, of which He spoke when He said "Then shall the righteous shine forth as the sun" (Mt 13:43). According to the Church's tradition, the Transfiguration occurred forty days before His Crucifixion; for this reason the Transfiguration is celebrated forty days before the Exaltation of the Cross.
