Bridegroom Matins

Behold the Bridegroom comes at midnight,
And blessed is the servant whom He shall find watching,
And again unworthy is the servant whom He shall find heedless.
Beware, therefore, O my soul, do not be weighed down with sleep,
Lest you be given up to death and lest you be shut out of the Kingdom.
But rouse yourself crying: Holy, Holy, Holy, are You, O our God!
Through the Theotokos have mercy on us!
(Troparion - Tone 8)

This Tuesday evening at 6:30PM we will be serving Bridegroom Matins at St Mark's Chapel. Please come to be a part of this important service of preparation leading us to venerate our Lord's Passion and glorious Pascha.
