FORGIVENESS VESPERS

Share |
FORGIVENESS VESPERS - Forgiveness Vespers is served on the evening of Forgiveness Sunday (Cheesefare Sunday) and is the first service of Great Lent. Forgiveness Vespers follows the order of Lenten Sunday Vespers but after the Great Prokeimenon the clergy exchange their bright vestments for dark and the choir begins to use distinctive Lenten tones. Following the dismissal, the community celebrates the moving and beautiful rite of mutual forgiveness.
