Holy Wednesday - Μεγάλη Τετάρτη
The Holy Unction @ 7PM
There are usually two church services that take place on Holy Wednesday, one in the morning and one in the evening. In the morning, the Liturgy of the Presanctified Gifts is usually celebrated. This is one of the only opportunities people have during Holy Week to receive Holy Communion. There is usually another service in the evening where people may receive Holy Unction.
The focus during the services of Holy Wednesday are of repentance and confession, and the oil is said to be very healing. This day commemorates the day that Christ’s feet were anointed with myrrh. You can read about this in Gospel of Luke, Chapter 7.
