Divine Liturgy at St.John Chrysostom Sunday, February 23, 2020 @ 10:00 am.

Following the Divine Liturgy we will meet with Metropolitan Tikhon during coffee hour.  We are asking our parishioners to bring something to share with the Metropolitan and our parishioners and friends. This is what we do for our Nameday celebration - the food prepared by our parishioners is far better than anything we would buy!

Pre-Lent

The paschal season of the Church is preceded by the season of Great Lent, which is itself preceded by its own liturgical preparation. The first sign of the approach of Great Lent comes five Sundays before its beginning. On this Sunday the Gospel reading is about Zacchaeus the tax-collector. It tells how Christ brought salvation to the sinful man and how his life was greatly changed simply because he “sought to see who Jesus was” (Lk 19.3). The desire and effort to see Jesus begins the entire movement through lent towards Easter. It is the first movement of salvation.

Great Lent

Great Lent begins Monday, March 2nd. We will have Presanctified Liturgy on Wednesday nights on March 4th, 11th and 18th@ 7:00pm. Great Lent is the 40-day season of spiritual preparation that comes before the most important Feast of the Christian year, Holy Pascha (which means “Passover” and is commonly called “Easter”,). It is the central part of a larger time of preparation called the Triodion season.

 


Annunciation

March 25th ANNUNCIATION  

The feast of the Annunciation of the Virgin Mary comes nine months before Christmas on the twenty-fifth of March. It is the celebration of the announcing of the birth of Christ to the Virgin Mary as recorded in the Gospel of Saint Luke.
