Prayer for the Beginning of the new School Year and the “Vespers of Forgiveness” – Sunday February 26, 2023, at St. Nicholas Cathedral

On Cheese-Fare Sunday, February 26, 2023, the Divine Liturgy was followed by a prayer ceremony for the beginning of the new School Year. Metropolitan Ambrosios recited a special prayer, after which he offered gifts to the students who are advancing class.

After the Agape Meal, the faithful attended the Service of Vespers of Forgiveness, where they had the opportunity to ask and offer forgiveness to each other, thus making the necessary preparation to enter the «Stadium of Virtues» of the Great Lent.

We wish all of our faithful to bear fruit in their spiritual struggles during the Great Lent.
