Holy & Great Week

The Programme of Sacred Services

The Holy and Great Week is the most important time of the whole year. Holy Week in the Eastern Orthodox Church institutes the sanctity of the whole calendar year of the Church. Its centre of commemorations and inspiration is Easter, wherein the glorified Resurrection of Jesus Christ is celebrated.

Every Sunday is dedicated in the Eastern Orthodox Church to the Resurrection of the Lord. One hundred days also are dedicated to Easter, 50 before it for preparation, and another 50 after it for commemorating the glorification of the Lord. Easter is considered the "Feast of Feasts."

As this is the busiest time of all for a Priest and a Church we shall not have new posts every day.
