LENTEN PENANCES AND PROSTRATIONS:
In the first centuries of Christianity the practice of public penance for various sins and offences prevailed in the Church. Following the wishes of the Church, many penitents performed their penance during the Great Fast. Just as the faithful adopted the Forty Days Fast from the catechumens, so too, under the influence of Church discipline they began to regard themselves as penitents and to perform various penitential acts during the Great Fast. From this stems the profound penitential spirit of our Lenten services.
Closely connected with our Lenten services are inclinations. These inclinations are made either by bowing from the waist or to the ground (the low, profound bow or prostration), and they are performed at all Lenten services from Monday through Friday.

CONFESSION: Confession will be available 15 – 20 minutes before any services in our parish.

PRAYERS: Please remember to pray for Ukraine, for peace and for returning of the aggressors to their home in Russia.
