JOHNSTOWN, PA — With the setting of the sun and the celebration of Forgiveness Vespers this evening, the season of The Great Fast has been ushered in throughout our God-Saved Diocese and the entire Orthodox Church.
This Holy Season, as His Eminence, Metropolitan Gregory has reminded us in his Lenten Archpastoral Letter, is a time for increased “… self-examination, reflection and confession…. Great Lent is not just about what we eat, but more importantly how we live.”
To assist the faithful in making the most of this holy season, additional resources have been added to our Diocesan Website.
