Holy Week Schedule of Services

Click here to access an indepth explanation of the services of Great and Holy Week as celebrated in the Greek Orthodox Church. It covers all of the services, beginning with the Saturday of Lazarus and ending with the Feast of Pascha. It has been prepared in the hope of enhancing the Holy Week experience for all of God's faithful.  Each day contains an explanation of the day's icon; scriptural references; festal or special hymns of the day; and an explanation of the themes of each service. Links for each day can be found in the navigation pane on the left. It is my prayer that these brief explanations help to make Holy Week come alive in our hearts as we prepare to receive our resurrected Lord on Pascha.
