Great Lent begins with the beautiful service of Forgiveness Vespers, which will be celebrated this Sunday, March 6, at 7:00pm in Madera. Everyone in the parish is strongly encouraged to attend, be edified by our Lord’s teachings on fasting and repentance, and receive forgiveness from one another. Let us begin this great and solemn season of increased prayer and almsgiving together with joy! Also, please see attached the March and April calendars. Make preparations now to attend as many services for Great Lent, Holy Week, and Pascha as you and your family can.
