Orthros and Divine Liturgy for the Saturday of Lazaros
This miracle - the Raising of Lazarus from the dead after four days in the tomb - catapulted Jesus into the Passion week, arrest, death, and ultimately His own Resurrection. Lazarus' emergence from the tomb thus prefigures Christ's own "resting in the tomb" Resurrection one week later.

About The Event
On the Saturday before Holy Week, the Orthodox Church commemorates a major feast of the year, the miracle of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ when he raised Lazarus from the dead after he had lain in the grave four days. Here, at the end of Great Lent and the forty days of fasting and penitence, the Church combines this celebration with that of Palm Sunday. In triumph and joy the Church bears witness to the power of Christ over death and exalts Him as King before entering the most solemn week of the year, one that leads the faithful in remembrance of His suffering and death and concludes with the great and glorious Feast of Pascha.
