Sunday of Orthodoxy - March 24, 2013
The Sunday of Orthodoxy is celebrated on the first Sunday of Great Lent. It is the celebration of the victory of the iconodules over the iconoclasts by the decision of the Seventh Ecumenical Council. Therefore, the service is to commemorate the restoration of icons for use in services and private devotional life of Christians.
Services include the clergy and the faithful triumphantly processing around the church, holding icons of their patron or parish saints.
