We are now approaching the season of Great Lent. This year, Great Lent begins Monday, March 15th.
During this time, Orthodox Christians fast and pray in preparation for the celebration of Christ’s Resurrection.
According to the Tradition of the Church, we observe this Fast by abstaining from meat (including poultry and eggs), dairy, fish, olive oil and wine. While many people relax these rules, it is important that we do as much as we can, so that we can properly prepare ourselves spiritually for the Great Feast of our Lord’s Resurrection.
