The Proclamation of the Passion Gospels on Thursday

The evening service we begin on contemplation of what will happen tomorrow, the day on which we commemorate the death of the Lord. The Church begins her prayer in vigil the night before for the following day following the ancient practice of the Jews and Christians in prayer. So, tonight on Holy Thursday we begin Good Friday.

As the scholar of the Church’s liturgical life, Fr. Alkiviades Calivas wrote: “In Christ, who is the New Adam, there is no sin. And, therefore, there is no death. He accepted death because ┬áHe assumed the who tragedy of our life. He chose to pour His life into death, in order to destroy it; and in order to break the hold of evil. His death is the final and ultimate revelation of His perfect obedience and love.” Join us for the service of proclaiming the 6 Gospel narratives of the Lord’s Life-Giving Passion.

Great and Holy Thursday at 6:30 p.m.
