APRIL 1: AKATHISTOS SATURDAY – “AKATHIST HYMN” IN HONOR OF THE THEOTOKOS

theotokos DIVINE LITURGY: 10:00 AM.

The Hymn is a profound, devotional poem, which sings the praises of the Holy Mother and Ever-Virgin Mary. This service was initiated in Greece in gratitude to the Theotokos for her numerous deliverance’s of Constantinople from its enemies. The Akathist is read here for the confirmation of the faithful in their reliance upon the Theotokos, who, delivering us from visible enemies, is even more an aid to us in our battle with invisible enemies.
