Matins of Great and Holy Saturday (Lamentations) • Harrisburg

Christ the Saviour Gathers for Matins and Lamentations - 04/26/2019

In the evening on Friday, April 26th our community gathered for the Matins and Lamentations, in which we sing songs of love and tenderness to our Lord in the Tomb. This service also marks the transition from the solemnity of Holy Friday and our Lord’s Crucifixion and Death, to the first announcements of His harrowing of Hades (Old Testament prophecy of Ezekiel and the resurrection of the “dry bones”; and the Epistle and Gospel lessons), following our return from our procession around the church.
