Churching Of Kyra Rose Jannakos
This Sunday before Liturgywe celebrated the Churching of Kyra Rose Jannakos. In Christian tradition the Churching of Women is the ceremony wherein a blessing is given to mothers after recovery from childbirth. On the fortieth day after childbirth, the mother is brought to the temple to be churched; that is to say, to receive a blessing as she begins attending church and receiving the Holy Mysteries (Sacraments) once again. They all stand together in the narthex (the entranceway) before the doors of the nave of the temple, facing east. The priest blesses them and says prayers for the woman and the child, giving thanks for their wellbeing and asking God's grace and blessings upon them.
