Soborovanie (Unction Service) to be served on Lazarus Saturday, 31st March 2018
Vladika Irenei is visiting the Diocese during Great Lent as he especially wants to keep the tradition of serving the Soborovanie (Unction Service) in London. He will also be here for Palm Sunday. He will serve a simple Hierarchal Liturgy on Lazarus Saturday (the commonly called "Caviar" Liturgy) followed by the Soborovanie at 12:00 noon. He asks that as many of the clergy and faithful of the Diocese gather for this important diocesan event to be with the bishop for this great sacrament of healing. Traditionally, this is served by the hierarch with seven priests. The faithful should have made their confessions during Great Lent.
