Immediately following Coffee Hour, we will serve Forgiveness Vespers to begin Great Lent.

12:30 pm – Forgiveness Vespers


The beginning of Great Lent is marked by this beautiful outward sign of repentance as our Lord Jesus Christ directs us: “If you forgive men their trespasses, your heavenly Father will forgive you; but if you do not forgive men their trespasses, neither will your heavenly Father forgive you your trespasses.” (Matthew 6:14)

Hearing these words, during the service of mutual forgiveness Orthodox Christians line up to ask forgiveness of one another and make prostrations before each other in order to remove all grudge or resentment that would hinder the beginning of the journey of repentance.
