Liturgy of the Presanctified Gifts

A short photo insight into the Orthodox Liturgy of the Presanctified Gifts - a service that takes place during the Lent: on Wednesdays and Fridays.
admin | 10 March 2011

The Liturgy of the Presanctified Gifts – Presanctified Liturgy – is a liturgical service for the distribution of Communion on the weekdays of Great Lent.
On the previous Sunday, additional Lambs (Hosts) are prepared and consecrated, enough for all of the Presanctified Liturgies that will be celebrated in the coming week. The exact same ceremonies and actions accompany the preparation and consecration of the extra lambs, as the one which will be used that day at the Divine Liturgy.
