St. Anna Holy Week – April 12-19, 2020

Below is the list of the services we will celebrate during Holy Week and leading up to the Saturday evening Pascha service.  You may join the clergy and chanters in praying and celebrating ALL of these services by going to the St. Anna Facebook Page – https://www.facebook.com/StAnnaOrthodoxColumbiaTN/

If you miss the appointed time for the service you may view and pray along with the clergy and chanters after the service is completed by clicking on the link to that service.  Father Stephen will be praying some of these services from his home.   The text of these services can be found in your Holy Week Service Book.

We understand that joining these services by viewing them on you your phone, tablet, computer screen or TV may not be like you are used to joining in on Holy Week services.  However, under these circumstances, complying with the directives sent to us by the Metropolitan and doing all we can to not put any of you at a health risk during these uncertain days, we believe these online services will be a great way to supplement your personal and family prayers and Holy Week and Pascha traditions at your home.  We know that you are doing your best to make these days special with your families and we urge you to make these limited daily services a part of your upcoming days as we journey together to Jerusalem, the upper room, the garden, the cross and the empty tomb.  May God have mercy on us all.
