Dormition Fast
Paraklesis Prayer Service

- Fr. Alexander Lukashonok -




Below is a link to a YouTube Video of the Musical Group, EIKONA. A group of Orthodox Christian Women from our own Denver Metropolis. In this link, they are singing the Paraklesis Prayer Service which the Orthodox Church expects each parish to pray every day during the Dormition Fast. However, as we are unable to gather together so often, please pray and sing along at home. On August 1st we entered these holy days, and it could be expected to pray this Service twice, that is, once a week. These days Orthodox need to pray more!

The Dormition Fast ends on August 15th with the celebration of the Divine Liturgy. Please note also, that this is the Name Day of most with the name Mary, Maria, Despina, Parthena, Panagiotis/Panagiota.

Please be safe and remain under the protection of the Holy Trinity!
In Christ, Fr. Alexander
