Paraclesis Service

Holy Trinity- Holy Cross is adding a new monthly service, Paraclesis, on the first Monday evening.

What is Paraclesis (Paraklesis)?

A Paraclesis (paraklesis) is a service of supplication specifically for the living (as opposed to a Memorial Service, which is a supplication for the departed). This service is most often addressed to the Theotokos, but may be used to seek the intercessions of any saint. The distinguishing feature of a paraclesis is the inclusion of a supplicatory canon to the saint whose intercessions are being sought. A paraclesis can be served as a stand-alone service, or, in a slightly abbreviated form, in conjunction with Vespers. It is appropriate to be served at any time of need.

When: Services will be held in the Chapel at 5:30 pm

Monday, September 10th

Monday, October 1st

Monday, November 5th

Monday, December 3rd

Submit your forms, with names of your living friends or family. The form is available here, from the Cathedral office, in the Narthex the Sunday before each, or simply email your names to the office (cathedral@holytrinity-holycross.org). Forms are also available in the Chapel at the beginning of each service.
