Rite for Preparation Sunday/Saturday

edited February 2014 in Hymns Discussion
What is the rite for the Saturday/Sunday just before the Great Lent? How is it similar/different from normal Saturday/Sunday of Great Lent?
Also, is there any special rite for the Saturday/Sunday of Jonah's fast, or the Thursday of Jonah's Fest, or are they normal days?


  • Lent refa3 weekend: there are special readings. Everything, us the same till the gospel response of sunday and there starts lent rite with je peniot and lent rite.

    Saturday and Sunday before Jonah's there is nothing different but some people started during Jonah's rite from the gospel response... I don't like that.
    For Thursday, they call it Jonah's Passover. The rite is annual but there are special readings and gospel responses.
