Special Pascha Offering

This year we have decided to place the special “Pascha Offering” in the “Extraordinary Designated Gifts Fund” to be used for items that will be needed in our new temple and education wing but which are not in our current building budget—items such as small corner domes, icons for interior domes and iconostasis, crosses for exterior domes, class room furniture, etc. Please clearly designate you checks for the “Special Pascha Offering.” May God bless you for your generosity and grant you a joyous celebration of the Victorious Resurrection of Our Lord.


Service Schedule Change – March 10, 2010

Please note that we will celebrate a Lenten Daily Vespers on Wednesday, March 10, instead of the regularly scheduled Liturgy of the Presanctified Gifts. Fr. Nicholas is scheduled to have surgery on his hand on Tuesday afternoon and will be unable to celebrate the liturgy Wednesday evening.

The service will begin at 6:30 p.m. and our usual Lenten soup dinner will follow. Please pray for Father’s speedy recovery!
