Current News at Saints Peter & Paul

February 2018

The Great Fast of Lent

The Great Fast is a pilgrimage of 40 days filled with prayer, fasting and good works.

We pray with our brothers and sisters at Divine Liturgy for the strength of purpose to stand spiritually with Jesus during His suffering, death and resurrection.

We fast with our brothers and sisters to align our bodies with our souls to maintain a strong sense of unity.

And we support our needy neighbors to bear witness to the whole world that Jesus loves ALL Mankind!

The Liturgy of the Presanctified Gifts every Friday Evening @ 6 pm during the Great Fast

On all Friday evenings at 6 pm we will celebrate the Liturgy of the Presanctified Gifts for all of our faithful. This service provides us the opportunity to chant the penitential psalms of David, express our remorse for our sins, beg Our Lord for forgiveness and then receive His Holy Body and Blood. Please come and pray with us every Friday evening during the Holy Fast.

The Divine Liturgy & Panachyda Service every Saturday Morning @ 8 am during the Great Fast

Every Saturday Morning during Lent we celebrate the Divine Liturgy at 8 am followed by the Panachyda or requiem service for all our deceased parish members and family. Be sure to give Father an updated list of all your family's deceased, so that he may include them in our prayers.

The Lenten Season of the Great Fast

The Church instructs us to fast from meat on Fridays. This practice strengthens our will-power so that we can perservere in the faith and complete our sacred journey to the Resurrection of our Lord.

Other lenten presciptions include: attending the Holy Liturgy every weekend, and performing acts of loving kindness towards those less fortunate.

 

Sunday Mornings with Father
