Great Lent

The Church tells us that we should fast every day of Great Lent.  We should also make every effort to attend all Lenten services during this time.  The church gives us the guides that we should follow during Great Lent for our spiritual growth and unless we take an active part in fulfuling what the Church gives us we will receive little benefit fron this Lenten season.  All parishioners are reminded that you must go to Confession and Communion at least once a year in order to be in good standing in the Church.  Those failing to go to these Sacraments at least once a year will be denied burial from the Church.

TEN RULES FOR GREAT LENT

Worship at divine services every Sunday

Attend special lenten services whenever possible

Pray often - briefly but sincerely

Meditate often on the dependence on God

Read Bible passages fron the Psalms and the New Testament daily

Read one or more religious books or biographies

Use moderation in food, drink, and entertainment

Prepare carefully for Confession and Communion

Practice charity with greater zeal

Refrain from criticism of others and from boasting of personal exploits

Troparion to St. Nicholas, Tone 4

 

The truth of things revealed you to your flock as a rule of faith,

an icon of meekness and a teacher of abstinence;

  You thus reached the heights through humility and wealth through poverty;

 O Holy Hierarch Father Nicholas, pray to Christ God for the salvation of our souls.
