The forty-day period of Great Lent started today with Clean Monday (Καθαρή Δευτέρα).
During this important period in our Orthodox ecclesiastical calendar there will be extra church services each week to prepare us for Holy Week and Easter as follows:
Monday, 7:00: Great Compline
Wednesday, 6:30: Liturgy of the Presanctified Gifts
Friday, 7:30: Salutations to the Theotokos
Church School students and their families are encouraged to attend as many of these extra weekday-services as they can.
As in previous years, Church School students should record and get credit for their church attendance during Lent using the sign-up sheets in the special three-ring binder that has been placed in the Narthex for this purpose.
