Lazarus Saturday @ Abu Sefein

  • St Mary & St Merkorious Coptic Orthodox Church 2 Cavell Avenue Rhodes, NSW, 2138 Australia (map)

Come celebrate with us the Feast day which commemorates the Raising of Lazarus from the dead and also signifies the end of our Journey through the Great and Holy Forty Days with a foretaste of the Glorious Resurrection of Christ.

The Service will begin with Raising of Morning Incense at 7:30am followed by the Divine Liturgy starting at 8:00am.

Following the Liturgy we will break our fast together and spend the day making Palm Crosses which will be given to the members of the Parish who will be attending the Palm Sunday Liturgy and also cleaning and decorating the Church for the Enterance of Christ into Jerusalem and the Palm Sunday services which will begin at 6:30pm with the Festal Palm Sunday Raising of Evening Incense.

This is the perfect opportunity for everyone to be able to learn how to make the palm crosses and how to decorate the church be able to keep the tradition alive within our parish.

See you all there!
