Patriarchate of Jerusalem: The Service of the Great Canon

On Wednesday, April 4/17, 2024, at the Church of the Holy Sepulchre and during the service of the Small Compline, the Great Canon was chanted, and presided over by His Eminence Archbishop Theophanes of Gerash. The following Archimandrites delivered the chanting; Nicodemus, Claudius, Bartholomew, Epiphanios, Dionysios, Christodoulos, Priest Ioannis Antoniou, Archdeacon Mark and Hierodeacon Simeon. The service was attended by monks, nuns, and members of the Church.

This Canon is a brilliant theological and literature poem from Saint Andrew from Jerusalem, Archbishop of Crete. The Canon includes a multitude of Old Testament characters portrayed as examples to imitate their virtues or avoid their sins. This is for our better participation in the Great Lent towards the feast day of Holy Pascha, in contrition, humility, and repentance.
