Liturgy of the Presanctified Gifts
The Liturgy of the Presanctified Gifts (or simply Presanctified Liturgy) is a liturgical service for the distribution of the Holy Gifts on some of the weekdays of Great Lent. The service consists of Vespers combined with additional prayers and communion. As much as possible, the Orthodox tradition encourages us to fast in anticipation of this evening eucharistic service.

Penitential Canon of St. Andrew of Crete and Life of St. Mary of Egypt

The Great Canon of St. Andrew of Crete (or Canon of Repentance) is a liturgical hymn prayed during the first week of Great Lent, and in its entirety on the fifth Thursday of Great Lent. It fosters a rich meditation on countless biblical examples of sin and repentance.

Of note, this is the longest service in our tradition and involves a large number of prostrations.  This can be physically taxing and naturally, this may not be feasible for all. All are nonetheless invited to come and pray the Great Canon!
