Great Lent Services 2018

Fasting for Presanctified Liturgy should begin after consumption of Lunch. Fasting through Great Lent should include abstaining from meat after Meatfare Sunday, and dairy products as well after Cheesefare Sunday. We may eat shellfish at any time, and fish with back bones on Annunciation, and the Entry into Jerusalem. Fasting for Holy Saturday should be a small dinner after that liturgy in preparation for the Pascha Vigil Service at 11:30PM. All of us should regularly participate in Confession (once every three to four weeks) especially during Great Lent in preparation for Pascha.
To facilitate regular Confession, we will continue to celebrate a General Confession after Vespers on the first Saturday of each month.
