Next Feast Day --- Meeting of the Lord in the Temple -- Wednesday Feb. 1 5:30pm Great Vespers with Potluck Supper

Jan 23, 2023

As was mentioned at our annual meeting, we are re-starting to have some weekday services for our Great Feast Days. Since many people live far from Church and given work and school schedules, we thought we would have potluck suppers to make life easier for everyone.

Please plan to attend our first upcoming feast with Great Vespers and a potluck supper.

Wednesday is a fasting day (no meat products), but fish and dairy are fine.
