Brief About MID LENT
Half way thru’ the ‘Great Lent’ is known as MID LENT!!! This is one of the very few days during the great lent when the HOLY QURBANA is celeberated on a week day other than Sunday or Saturday. On this day there is a procession around the church carrying the cross. This is followed by an exhaltation of the Cross (Sleeba Aaghosham) facing the four directions; East, West, North and South!!! Then the cross is placed on a big decorated cross like stand covered
with a red cloth (Gogultha) in the middle of the the church. This remains in the church till the Feast of Assension of our Lord which occurs 40 days after the Kyomtha (Feast of the Resurrection ie. Easter)!!!
