In this section, there is a listing of the times and locations for the Divine Liturgy and other Holy Services each week.
In the “NEWS” section, you will receive information about events and special occasions of the Orthodox Community of Alanya and the Orthodox Metropolitan District of Pisidia, Side, and Antalya.
The greater purpose of this website is to foster community and connect all Orthodox of Alanya to a great spiritual family, so that no one feels alone as long as they live in this beautiful area.
On this 5th and last Sunday of Holy Great Lent, the Church puts forward the figure of St. Mary of Egypt as a prime example of sincere repentance. We know that the whole of Great Lent is focused on repentance, and we do so by fasting, kneeling, making prostrations, and enduring long Holy Services. Even with all of this, some may still have doubt in their hearts. Can I, who have committed grave sins, be forgiven by God? The life of St. Mary of Egypt answers this question.
Almighty Master, the help and salvation of the world; the redeemer and Savior of the sick; the physician and aid of the ailing; the healer of the sorrows of mankind’s bodies and souls; who vanquished death: our God.
