Pascha Prayers 2014

The Holy Week of Pascha is central to the life of the church.

holyweekIt is a celebration of the Heavenly Father’s love. “For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life” (John 3:16). It is also a living remembrance of our Lord Jesus Christ, “who through the eternal Spirit offered Himself without spot to God” (Hebrew 9:14).

This year, we will also be holding two of the services at St Mary and Pope Kyrillos VI Church, Hounslow, in addition to the services at St Mark Church. The Schedule for the services of Holy Week is as follows:
