Leavetaking of Pascha & Ascension Day: Wednesday 16th May

Come and celebrate with us on Wednesday 16th May!

At 7 pm we will sing the Paschal Hours for the last time this year to mark the Leavetaking of Pascha: the Epitaphios / Plaschanitsa will be returned to its place at the back of the church, accompanied by the final singing of the Paschal Troparion.

At around 7.30 pm we will begin Vespers and the Divine Liturgy of the Ascension.

As well as being a Feast of the Lord, the Ascension is the ‘Feast of Title’ of our church – so a very important day in our calendar. Come and celebrate the Feast!

Services on Sunday 6 May 2018

Christ is risen!
The Church of the Ascension will be closed for repairs to the floor on Sunday 6 May. But we are delighted that it will still be possible to serve the Liturgy in Rugby on that day.
God willing, Matins will be served as usual at 9.30 am and the Liturgy at 10.15 am in the hall of the United Reformed Church, 40 Hillmorton Rd, Rugby CV22 5AD. A map showing the location of the hall may be found here: 
 
I know that some of us will be away for the Bank Holiday weekend and/or Half Term, but it would be wonderful if as many of us as possible could come together to serve the Liturgy with joy and enthusiasm!
Many thanks to the United Reformed Church for their help, kindness, and hospitality.
May God bless you
Father Kosmas
