Holy Archimandrite of the Lavra led the celebrations on the Dedication Feast


On the day of the Great Feast of the Dormition of Our Most Holy Lady Mother of God and Ever-Virgin Mary, the peculiar divine services are held in the Kyiv-Caves Monastery, since the main Church of the Monastery is dedicated to this day as one of the great twelve feasts.

Traditionally, the all-night vigil on the eve of the feast is held in the cathedrals of the Kyiv-Caves Lavra. In the Great Church, the small vespers with the reading of the Akathistus to the Dormition of the Most Holy Theotokos preceded the divine service.

Thereafter, His Beatitude Metropolitan Onuphrius of Kyiv and All Ukraine headed the vigil service, and the nomination of Archimandrite Agathon elected by the Bishop of Koktebel was performed. Prior to his election as an hierarch, the clergyman of the Lavra carried the obedience of the sacristan of the Monastery. A special feature of the fraternal all-night vigil celebrated in the Church of Venerable Anthony and Theodosius of the Caves with the Refectory Chamber is the performance of the Burial Order. On the dedication day, the conciliar Divine Liturgy was led by the Holy Archimandrite of the Lavra, His Beatitude Metropolitan Onuphrius. At the beginning of the service, the hierarchy ordination of Archimandrite Agathon was performed. The Head of the Ukrainian Orthodox Church was joined in services by Metropolitan Hilarion of Donetsk and Mariupol, Vicegerent of the Caves Monastery Metropolitan Pavel of Vyshgorod and Chornobyl, Administrator of the UOC Metropolitan Anthony of Boryspil and Brovary, and the eminent hierarchs. At the Minor Entrance, the clergy of the Lavra were honored with high liturgical awards. After reading the Gospel, His Beatitude Metropolitan Onuphrius addressed those praying with the pastoral speech about the holy life of the Ever-Immaculate Virgin Mary before Her departure to the Lord. In conclusion, the cathedral cross procession was held to the Near Caves, where, after glorifying the feast, everyone was sprinkled with holy water, and a festive meal was offered to pilgrims near the Far Caves.
