Who is St. Andrew of Crete and What is the Great Canon?
As we approach the 5th Sunday of Great Lent, we have an opportunity to learn about and appreciate St Andrew of Crete, and his Great Penitential Canon, which is recited this Thursday. We will be live streaming this service at 6pm to your little church in your home this week. Join us as we continue to live stream Divine services of the Orthodox Church regularly. The full copy of St Andrew is below based on the three questions Fr. John asked during his sermon a few days ago.
