Pentecost Saturday of the Souls, June 3, 2017 at 9:30am
Saturday of the Souls liturgy for Pentecost will be held on Saturday, June 3, 2017 starting at 9:30am.
Saturday of Souls is a day set aside for commemoration of the dead within the liturgical year of the Orthodox Church. Saturday is a traditional day for prayer for the dead, because Christ lay dead in the Tomb on Saturday.
Bring kollyva (boiled wheat) if you can but even if you can’t bring the names of your deceased loved ones anyway. We will hold a memorial service for them after the Divine Liturgy.
