Please join us for Vespers for the Feast of the Presentation of Our Lord on Saturday, February 1, 2020 at 5:00 p.m.
The Presentation is one of the Twelve Great Feasts in our church. We will again commemorate the Feast the following morning, on Sunday, during the Divine Liturgy.
Lord, now lettest Thou Thy servant depart in peace, according to Thy word!
For mine eyes have seen Thy salvation,
Which Thou hast prepared before the face of all people;
A light for revelation to the gentiles, and for glory to Thy people Israel!
Hail, O full of grace, Virgin and Mother of God, from you has arisen the Sun of Justice, Christ our God, enlightening those who stand in darkness. You, too, O just Elder Simeon, rejoice for you carry in your arms the Redeemer of our souls, who grants us resurrection.
