The word Vespers comes from the Greek word that means ‘in the evening,’ so this is the evening prayer service which thanks God for the day that is coming to a close and inaugurates the new day. Saturday night Great Vespers brings in the Lord’s Day and is therefore resurrectional in character.
The word Orthros, in Greek means ‘sunrise’ or ‘dawn.’ So the Orthros, or Matins Service is the sunrise worship service.
The Divine Liturgy of St. John Chrysostom (c. 347-407), Archbishop of Constantinople, is the most prevalent of four ancient liturgies utilized by the early Church and still celebrated today. Divine Liturgy is celebrated each Sunday at 9:30am preceded by the Orthros Service.
There are numerous other opportunities to worship, including during scheduled weekday liturgies and services.
