Dormition of the Mother of God
Orthodox Monastery
Rives Junction, Michigan

Daily Services

The Monastery keeps the Church's daily cycle of services according to the schedule displayed below.  Exceptions and/or additions to this schedule occur for feasts, great saints, pilgrimages, and specially requested services. See the links on the right to the special pages for schedules of the Holy Unction Services, Great Lent, Holy and Bright Weeks, Nativity and Theophany, and the Dormition Pilgrimage. See the calendar for Vigils, Liturgies, Holy Unction Services, as well as other special services or events (but not for the normal daily cycle of services). Every attempt will be made to keep the schedules accurate and to post schedule changes in the Announcements' section of the Home page, but visitors should keep in mind that some changes, especially those that occur at the last minute, are not communicated in as timely a fashion as we wish. It is always a good idea to call before making a trip to the monastery for a special service to confirm the service schedule.

Please note that the Monastery is closed from Sunday evening until Monday evening (unless otherwise indicated on the calendar).
