Sunday 17 April - Obednitsa/Reader Service

Fifth Sunday of Great Lent. Ven. Mary of Egypt

Obednitsa (reader service) starts at 10.45am with the hours.
The Obednitsa is a service that we are blessed to hold when our priest cannot be with us, and contains all parts of the Liturgy except those pertaining to Holy Communion. Because of this, it is a shorter service, usually lasting no more than an hour. We are scheduling an Obednitsa for the 3rd Sunday of most months so that the community can meet to pray between the Liturgies that are normally served on the first Sunday.
We will follow the service with tea/coffee instead of our usual parish meal.


Fr. Joseph will next be with us for the weekend 7th/8th May, when he will serve vespers and the Liturgy. This will be Thomas Sunday, the first Sunday after Pascha.
