The Akathist Hymn

Christ is risen!

I have some catching up to do in terms of photos. First on deck are a few photos from our service here in Panorama on Friday evening of the 5th Saturday of Lent, dedicated to the Akathist Hymn.

The Friday evening Akathist services are among the most well-attended services in Greece, so much so that our parish offers them twice, once at 7:00 PM and again at 9:00 PM. On the 5th Friday evening, in which we did the full service, the second service was done as part of Orthros, which then led into a vigil.

Above and below are photos of me singing one of the stasis.
