Upcoming events, lectures, services, activities, etc...Liturgy of St James (Iakovos) the Brother of Our Lord (in Greek)
Monday 23rd October 2017
7:30am - 11:00am St Eustathios Church, 221 Dorcas St, South Melbourne
Matins & Divine Liturgy on the occasion of the Feast of St James (Iakovos) the Apostle celebrated by His Grace Bishop Iakovos of Miletoupolis and clergy of Melbourne.
This is one of the most ancient Liturgies of the Church and is different from the other Liturgies in that the Bishop and Priests stand at the Altar facing the congregation. Also, Holy Communion is distributed to the people in a similar way as is normally given to the Priests - i.e. the Body of Christ is given separately and then the Blood of Christ is received directly from the chalice.
