Lenten Schedule (Week One)

Tomorrow, February 18, 2018, is Forgiveness Sunday. The next day we begin our Lenten Journey with prayer, fasting, and alms as seek purity of heart in preparation for the Resurrection of Christ, which we celebrate on Pascha, April 8. The first week the monastery will be closed to the public to devote ourselves to deeper prayer. Below is our monastic schedule for most of Great Lent.
