The Victoria & Vancouver Island Pan-Orthodox Association is comprised of 4 canonical Eastern Orthodox churches of different jurisdictions. During the year’s two major fasting periods, Great Lent and the Nativity Fast, the churches share some of the services. Even though the service is the same, each church has their own particular musical settings and sometimes, language. This gives the faithful an opportunity to participate and learn something of the traditions of each church.
This year, Great Lent begins on March 3, and Pascha is celebrated April 20.
