Vigil Divine Liturgy
January 20, 2024 @ 4:30 pm - 5:30 pm
The Divine Liturgy is the highest point of Melkite liturgical services. In the Divine Liturgy, we celebrate the Eucharist; Christ is made present among us in the breaking of bread; Christ is the one who offers and is offered; and through the prayers and rituals of the Divine Liturgy, we participate in Christ’s sacrifice on the Cross and all of salvation history. Other services that lead us more deeply into the celebration of the Eucharist include services like Great Vespers (evening prayer) and Orthros (morning prayer). At St. Basil’s, a Vigil Divine Liturgy in addition to the Sunday Divine Liturgy is held to meet the current pastoral needs of the community.
