Sorokousty (All Souls’s Days)
During Lent and the Easter season the Church prays for our beloved dead. Father Iura yearly announces the dates for the Sorokousty (All Souls Days) on which special prayers are offered in remembrance of those who have died.

Let us remember all our loved ones who have gone to their heavenly reward. Eternal Memory!

The word Ukrainian word “Sorokousty” means “forty mouths” (sorok = forty; ust = mouth). Originally, this was a prayer service offered by forty mouths or by forty priests. Historically, families would honor their deceased by holding services for them in the cathedrals on the 3rd, 9th and 40th day after their death —with 40 priests celebrating the services. Today, Sorokousty is the service that honors the deceased and is offered during Lent.
