Celebration of the feast: kyriopascha & calendar
If the feast comes on a weekday of Lent, the [[Divine Liturgy]] of the feast is served in the evening with [[Vespers]] (in some traditions). When this happens, the fasting rules for the [[Liturgy of the Presanctified Gifts]] are followed. The Divine Liturgy of the Annunciation is the only celebration of the [[Eucharist]]ic liturgy of Saint John Chrysostom allowed on a weekday of Great Lent.
If the feast falls on the same day as [[Pascha]], the resultant festival is called [[Kyriopascha]] and is celebrated with special [[rubrics]]. Presently, Kyriopascha is possible only among the churches that observe the old style or traditional [[Julian calendar]] or the [[Gregorian calendar]] (that is, [[Finland]] and [[Estonia]]).
