With the beginning of the Triodion we are now approaching the Great Lent. Before the Great Lent, the Church offers the Saturday of the Souls which this year will be on March 5th, 12th & 19th. All Saturdays are dedicated to the souls of the departed, because this was the day that our Lord, Jesus Christ rested in the tomb preparing those in Hades for His resurrection. The Saturday of the soul is an expression of love for our loved ones who have fallen asleep.
If you would like to submit names of your loved ones who have fallen asleep please do so here! The names will be commemorated during the Divine Liturgy for the three consecutive Saturdays of the Souls.
In Christ’s Ministry,
Fr. John K. Lardas
