Invitation to Coventry Parish Feast

The Community of our neighbouring Parish of the Transfiguration, Coventry, have invited us to share in the celebration of their Parish Feast of the Transfiguration of the Lord.

Great Vespers will be celebrated in the Church of the Transfiguration on Monday 5th August 2019 at 7 pm. Refreshments will be served in the Church Hall after the service for everyone attending.

Matins and the Divine Liturgy will be served on Tuesday 6th August 2019, beginning at 9 am.

Additionally, on both days, the Church of the Transfiguration will be hosting a replica of the wonder-working Icon of the Mother of God of Three Hands (Богородица Тројеручица / Παναγία Τριχερούσα) which is on loan from Hilander Monastery on Mount Athos.

Leavetaking of Pascha & Ascension Day: Wednesday 5th June

Come and celebrate with us on Wednesday 5th June!

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!
