About The Event

Join is for the Salutations services honoring the blessed Theotokos.  The Service of the Salutations is known as one of the hymnological masterpieces of the Church. During the first four Salutation services, the Akathist Hymn is sung in parts.  The Akathist Hymn is a profound, devotional poem which sings the praises of the Holy Mother and Ever-Virgin Mary. This hymn comprises twenty four stanzas, divided into four parts. One part is sung on each Friday of Great Lent and on the fifth Friday, the entire set, called The Akathist Hymn, is sung in commemoration of a miracle performed by the Virgin in Constantinople.
