Memorial (Soul) Saturdays

One of the most venerable traditions in the Holy Orthodox Church is the commemoration of the departed in our Liturgical prayers.We remember our deceased at every Liturgy. In our Liturgical calendar, Saturdays are dedicated, in a special way, to prayer for the dead, since on that day God not only rested from His work, but Christ lay in the tomb. In accord with this, the Church has established special days of universal commemoration commonly known as Memorial (Soul) Saturdays. This year, there are five such Saturdays:

February 26 (Pre-Lent); March 19 & April 2 (Lent); June 11 (Eve of Pentecost); and October 22 (Demetrius Saturday)

 Liturgy on each of these days will be preceded by Matins for the Departed on Friday evening. A form to list the names of those that you want mentioned during these services is found in the bulletin or can be printed here. Mem_Sat_2022_Form
