in Lent: Liturgy of St Basil
and Pan-Orthodox Vespers
Saturday and Sunday worship are always resurrectional, and Lent does
not change their character. At the Divine Liturgy on Sundays in Lent,
however, much longer prayers are read at the consecration of the bread
and wine. This service is called the Liturgy of St Basil, after the one
who wrote these prayers.
Each Sunday in Lent is traditionally associated with its own theme.
Beginning March 5, a pan-Orthodox Vespers service is served each
Sunday at 4 PM at a different area church, followed by a meal.
