First week of great Lent

During the first week of Great Lent, services were held daily at the church of St Sergius of Radonezh. In the evenings, the service of Great Compline with the reading of the Great Canon of St Andrew of Crete was held. The Liturgy of the Presanctified Gifts was also celebrated on Thursday morning.

Rector Fr Daniel Lugovoy and parishioners prayed for our All-compassionate Lord’s spiritual strength and renewal during the spiritual feat of Great Lent, and that He would open to them the doors of repentance and grant them the grace-filled gifts of the Holy Spirit.
