The Conclusion of the Great and Holy Forty Days

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

With the conclusion of the Great and Holy Forty Days of Fasting the Church marks this event with the Service of Holy Unction followed by the Divine Liturgy.

We will be holding an English Service starting at 7:00pm with the Unction on the 21st of April which is a Thursday Night (Liturgically Friday, since the Liturgical Day begins at sunset, think of the Eves in Holy Week, Monday Eve, is actually Sunday Night).

This service takes place once a year and stands as an affirmation of the healing of our souls and the forgivness of our sins which we have recieved due to the purifying experience we have encountered in the Arena of the Great and Holy Fast and untimately our death and resurrection in Christ.
