Great Lent Begins
Clean Monday, February 15

Wednesday, February 17
Liturgy of the Presanctified Gifts 6:00 PM

Let us joyfully begin the all-hallowed season of abstinence; and let us shine with the bright radiance of the holy commandments of Christ our God, with brightness of love and splendor of prayer, with the purity of holiness and the strength of good courage. So, clothed in raiment of light, let us hasten to the Holy Resurrection on the third day, that shines upon the world with the glory of eternal life. - from the Lenten Triodion, Mattins for Week One
