On Sunday, May 14, 2023, Fr. John gave a special presentation to the combined church school classes on the Proskomedia, which is the first part of the Divine Liturgy, served by the priest before the faithful arrive at church. In the Proskomedia (from the Greek προσκομιδή, “offering”), the priest prepares the Lamb (the bread) and the wine to be consecrated for Holy Communion, commemorates the Theotokos and the ranks of Saints, and remembers the living and the departed. The class covered the liturgical items used such as the chalice, the diskos, the spear and spoon, as well as the prayers and rites of the service.
