PROCESSION ETIQUETTE: The liturgical services for Great and Holy Friday and Pascha include processions. This custom allows us to enter into the experience of the Passion and Resurrection of Christ as the holy men and women of the Gospel did. Everyone who can walk safely should take part in the processions. Please BE READY TO EXIT THE CHURCH when instructed. Please maintain a prayerful spirit by choosing NOT TO ENGAGE IN IDLE CONVERSATIONS and by choosing TO JOIN IN THE CHANTING of the tropars. These processions are also an opportunity to proclaim our faith in public. Please do your part to make sure we present the image of a believing Church in fervent prayer to the Lord who died and rose for us

Leaders of the heavenly armies, although we are unworthy, we always beseech you, to fortify us by your prayers and to shelter us beneath the wings of your sublime glory. Watch over us who bow to you and cry out fervently: Deliver us from danger, for you are the commanders of the powers on high.
