"Give rest, O Christ, among the Saints to the souls of Your servants, where there is no pain, no sorrow, no grieving, but life everlasting." Kontakion of Saturday of Souls, Tone 8
Our Holy Orthodox Christian Church, like a loving and caring mother, daily, at every divine service offers up prayers for all her children who have departed for the land of eternity. Furthermore, this coming Saturday, June 6 2020, Saturday before Pentecost is the Saturday of Souls. On this day, our Holy Church allows us to commemorate all our departed loved ones and also remembers all her children that have left this earthly life and perhaps remain unknown to others.
Although the monastery's church is still closed due to the pandemic, the service of commemoration will be celebrated at the monastery this coming Saturday. Whoever wishes to send a donation with the baptismal names of their orthodox departed brethren and loved ones may do so.
