For Those Coming to Ottawa
Saturday March 23rd vespers with H.E. begins at 5 pm - a Soul Saturday Panakhyda will begin prior to that at 4:30 pm. After vespers there will be a informal get together at a nearby restaurant/pub.
Please be advised that His Eminence has moved the liturgy start time on Sunday March 24th to 9:30 am. The ordinations to the Sub-diaconate will begin promptly on the heals of the start of the service - so be sure to give yourself some cushionroom if you're the type who likes to arrive just as liturgy begins. This is the work of the faithful, to pray with the Metropolitan so that the grace of God will come upon those being ordained to carry the ministry of our church.
(Limited) parking is available behind the church hall (58 Arthur Street), which is around the corner from the church. There are also three or four pay lots within two blocks of the church, and if you arrive early enough, you should find free street parking as well.
Do reach out to the clergy and parish council if you need assistance to come.
Parish Meeting after Presanctified Liturgy Wednesday March 27
We would like to invite everyone to a group discussion following our first Pre-sanctified liturgy this Wednesday, March 27th, which will begin at 6:30pm. Instead of our regular custom to break bread in silence, we would like to take the opportunity to meet and discuss recent developments for a future semi-permanent home for our church community.
