Salutations to the Most Holy Theotokos

Salutations to the Most Holy Theotokos is an Akathist service, celebrated during Lent. Akathist means “not sitting” and we stand for the whole service.

The Akathist is often split into four parts and sung at the “Salutations to the Theotokos” service on the first four Friday evenings in Great Lent; the entire Akathist is then sung on the fifth Friday evening.

Rejoice, unwedded bride!
