Passion Week Schedule - Smiocbristol
We want to invite you to join our church in prayerfully and devotedly honouring Holy Week as we get closer to the holiest season of the year. We should take a moment to consider the circumstances leading up to Jesus crucifixion and his miraculous resurrection at this time. Learn more about this year’s PASSION WEEK at our church as follows:
The first period of our liturgical year begins at the end of October or at the beginning of November, on the Sunday between October 30th and November 5th. It is the beginning of the Orthodox Church calendar. This Sunday is called Koodhosh-Eetho Sunday. It means to “sanctify or purify the church.
We celebrate the fourth Sunday of Great Lent as 'Knanaitho Sunday', Healing of the Daughter of Canaanite Woman.
We celebrate the third Sunday of Great Lent as 'Paralytic Sunday'. On this Sunday we commemorate the healing of the Paralytic who was lowered into a house.
