Liturgy is the most important service of the Church as this is when Christians receive the Body and Blood of Christ in the Eucharist.

The word "Liturgy" comes from ancient Greek (λειτουργία) and is translated as "litos ergos" or "public service". (work of the people)

​God is present everywhere, and His essence is in all of creation, but the Liturgy is special.  Christ comes to us in the Liturgy and unites us with Him for our salvation.

If case you are planning to receive your first Eucharist, contact Father Valeriy for further guidance.

Learning about Liturgy, its history, understanding the content of the service helps for fruitful prayers and eliminates distractions. We invite you to take some time reading some of the explanations of the service, as well as the prayers themselves. The Liturgical order of prayers is written in Slavonic and English - for your convenience you can print it or follow from your phone during Liturgy.
