Special Upcoming Services and Events
Sunday, February 26th, FORGIVENESS VESPERS will begin at 5:00 P.M. This unique service marks the beginning of Great Lent, and it is the first occasion when the faithful in Christ do prostrations and say the humility prayer of St. Ephraim. Members then take turns asking forgiveness of each other and receiving a blessing from the Priest. Great Lent serves as an increased period of inner reflection, fasting, confession, and other forms of preparation as we approach Holy Pascha (Easter).
Wednesday, March 1st, A PRE-SANCTIFIED LITURGY will begin at 5:30 P.M. and be held each Wednesday evening through April 5th. These services are meant to strengthen and encourage faithful Christians during the increased time of prayer and fasting known as Great Lent.
Friday, March 3rd, The first SALUTATION to the THEOTOKOS will be held at Holy Trinity Greek Orthodox Church in Grand Rapids and begin at 7:00 P.M.
Friday, March 10th through Sunday, March 12th, Holy Dormition Monastery (Rives Junction, MI) plans to host a WOMEN'S LENTEN RETREAT. The Retreat topic is: "Be Still and the Lord Will Fight for You." Informational handouts can be found in the narthex as you enter the parish.
Saturday, March 18th, All hands on deck! Members of the Church will gather at the parish for some SPRING CLEANING from 9:00 A.M. to about 12 noon. For those who are able, please plan to set aside some time in the morning to show up and assist for a bit. Remember, many hands make light work.
