The word Orthros in Greek literally means 'Sunrise' or 'Dawn'. The Matins Service is therefore the sunrise worship service of the day.
Note: if this is your first time visiting we recommend attending the Divine Liturgy service, and also reading the "Your First Time" article before you attend.
The Divine Liturgy of St. John Chrysostom (c. 347-407), Archbishop of Constantinople, is the most prevalent of four ancient liturgies utilized by the early Church and still celebrated today.
