Events Calendar

This is an Eastern Orthodox Christian celebration.  Clean Monday is the start of Great Lent in Eastern Orthodox churches. It's a day of strict prayer and fasting.

Great Lent is the most important fasting season in Orthodox Christianity. It corresponds to Lent in Western Christianity and they both use a period of 40 days because of the 40 days that Jesus is said to have spent fasting in the wilderness.
