All Are Invited to Decorate Epitaphios

In preparation for Holy Friday Night’s Lamentation Service, at which we commemorate the burial of our Lord, we will be decorating the Kouvouklion with flowers on Holy Friday Morning. Immediately following the Service of Royal Hours, which begins at 9:00 AM and lasts approximately one hour, volunteers will begin this sacred task.  All are invited to come to the church and help with the preparations.

The Epitaphios (Christ’s Burial Icon) will be laid inside the Kouvouklion as we all gather to sing the Lamentation and to join in solemn procession at Holy Friday Night’s service.  Please enrich your experience of Holy Week by joining in the sacred and pious act of preparing the Kouvouklion and Epitaphios.

Holy Friday’s Schedule of Services is as follows:

Royal Hours – 9:00 AM

Vespers of the Descent from the Cross – 3:00 PM

Lamentations Service – 7:00 PM
