This vespers service is unique to the Byzantine Rite. It is celebrated during the Great Fast, and provides the faithful with the opportunity to receive Holy Communion on those days when then the Eucharistic Sacrifice is not celebrated. The word “presanctified” indicates that the “gifts” (the Body and Blood of Christ) which are distributed at the service are those consecrated at a previous Eucharist.


Travelling?  See Mass Times for listings of churches and times for any area.


“The Holy Spirit shall come upon you, and the power of the Most High shall  overshadow you.” 

Having gifts that differ according to the grace given to us, let us use them. (Romans 12:6)

St. Michael the Archangel,
defend us in battle.
Be our defense against the wickedness and snares of the Devil.
May God rebuke him, we humbly pray,
and do thou,
O Prince of the heavenly hosts,
by the power of God,
thrust into hell Satan,
and all the evil spirits,
who prowl about the world
seeking the ruin of souls.  Amen.


The Lord is near, do not be anxious about anything. Instead, pray about everything. (Philippians: 4:5-6)

 

Glory to Jesus Christ! Glory Forever!
