Paraklesis

Aug 02 2024
7:00 pm - 8:00 pm

paraklesis is a service of supplication specifically for the living (as opposed to a Memorial Service, which is a supplication for the departed). During the First two weeks of August this service is  addressed to the Theotokos, but may be used to seek the intercessions of any saint during other times of the year.  A paraklesis can be served as a stand-alone service or, in a slightly abbreviated form, in conjunction with Vespers. It is appropriate to be served at any time of need.
