Holy Friday Vespers

May 3 @ 3:00 pm - 4:30 pm

Also known as the “Un-nailing Service.” In this most dramatic service, we commemorate the burial of Christ. The icon of the Lord is removed from the Cross, wrapped in a shroud, and symbolically entombed on the altar. The epitaphios or plaschanitsa, a special icon representing the tomb of Christ, is carried out and venerated by the faithful.
