Meatfare Sunday


On March 3, on Meatfare Sunday, we had a liturgical celebration at St. George Church. In our Rector’s absence it was headed by Priest Mark Rashkov, cleric of St. Nicholas Cathedral.

The Gospel lesson on this Sunday is telling us about the Last Judgment at the second coming of Christ. Fr. Mark preached a homily regarding that spiritually important theme.

Since no services for the departed were performed on Meatfare Memorial Saturday, Fr. Mark added the Litany for the deceased to the Liturgy with commemoration of those who had fallen asleep.
