Great and Holy Tuesday
Please join us tonight for the Bridegroom Matins service here at St. Nicholas Church at 6:30 PM.
The Theme of Tonight's Bridegroom Service The theme of Holy Tuesday is repentance and forgiveness. We remember the sinful woman who anointed our Lord in anticipation of His death. Her repentance and love of Christ is the theme of the wonderful "Hymn of Kassiane" which is chanted on this night, reminding us one more time, before "it is too late," that we too may be forgiven if we repent.
Great and Holy Wednesday

Great and Holy Tuesday: Christ, the Bridegroom (April 15)
Behold, the Bridegroom cometh at midnight, and blessed is the servant whom He shall find awake. But he whom he shall find neglectful is verily unworthy. Behold, therefore, my soul, beware, lest thou fallest into deep slumber, and the door of the Kingdom be closed against thee, and thou be delivered unto death. But be thou wakeful, crying, Holy, Holy, Holy, art Thou, O God. Through the intercessions of the Theotokos, have mercy on us. (Apolytikion in Tone 8)
