On the occasion of our very first Episcopal visit at St Anna Orthodox Christian Church, His Grace Bishop NICHOLAS prayed Great Vespers with us on Sunday, August 18, 2019. Truly an historic event for the first known Orthodox Christian Bishop to ever visit and pray in Columbia, TN! We were encouraged to remain faithful to God, pray for those in our community and invite them to join us.
Great Vespers begins THIS Saturday – July 20, 5:00pm. We will begin praying Great Vespers each Saturday beginning THIS WEEK. This is a very special service marking the beginning of the liturgical week and is a brief and solemn service of prayer and preparation for the Sunday Liturgy. Please join us on Saturday evening.
The Holy Fire from the Paschal Liturgy at the Church of the Holy Sepulcher in Jerusalem is at St. Anna and will be available for you to take home with you beginning on Sunday tomorrow. Please bring your own candle or lantern to use to transport the flame as a blessing to your home. You can read more about the Holy Fire at this link: https://orthodoxwiki.org/Holy_Fire
