Lenten Vespers Conclude at St. Stephen Serbian Orthodox Church

Last Sunday, April 1, 2012, we have concluded this year’s Lenten Vespers with a celebration at Saint Stephen Serbian Orthodox Church in Lakawanna NY. This year’s Lenten Vespers attracted about 80 faithful “followers”.

The Lenten Vespers at each of the orthodox parishes were accompanied by the magnificent signing led by the Pan Orthodox Choir of Niagara Frontier under the direction of Father Rastko Trbuhovich, the rector of Saint Stephen Serbian Orthodox Church.

Bellow are the experts from yesterday celebration. Unfortunately my camera doesn’t do well in the low light conditions, but I am sure you can appreciate the signing and may be encouraged to attend the future Pan Orthodx events and celebrations.

Saints Peter and Paul Will Host Pan-Orthodox Lenten Vespers on March 18

On Sunday March 18, our Church is hosting the Pan-Orthodox Leten Vespers. The Vespers will begin at 5:00PM. The Sunday Lenten Vespers have been celebrated in our area for many years and has become a “Lenten tradition” for many Orthodox Christian. You can see the full schedule of the Lenten Pan-Orthodox Vespers here. The Pan-Orthodox Choir of Buffalo and Greater Niagara region will sing the responses.
