SCHEDULE OF SERVICES FOR GREAT LENT - 2020
Our Lent begins on Sunday evening, March 1, with the Vespers of Mutual Forgiveness. Forgiveness, our forgiveness of others and our recognition that it is we who are the ones most in need of forgiveness, is the "Door to Repentance" - the Door that God will open to us if we are willing to "unlock" it.
