St. Silouan House of Hospitality - 9:30am to 2:30pm
Each Thursday, St Silouan continues the liturgical life of our community - gathering, praying, and sharing a meal together. Come and be connected to others, brothers and sisters in Christ. For those who cannot for one reason or another be present during this communal work of mercy, you can participate through your prayers, and if you are interested, please speak to Fr. Paul about offering food/or the cost of a meal in memorial of a loved one. If you'd like to stop by and grab a cup of coffee with Fr. Paul, by all means, please do!

- Parenting towards the Kingdom - 3:30pm
The parish is inviting mothers and fathers young and old to swap and share their insights and experiences into how we can guide our children toward engaging with their faith, and deeping their love for the Lord and His Church. The ever talented Polina will be facilitating this round table discussion. Bring your questions, concerns, tips, and whatever else to this hopefully first of many thinking moments on how to best nature and support our kids on their walk with God.
- Vespers at 4:30
- Memorial service for all who would like to commemorate a departed loved one immediately following vespers
Please note that we generally do not do Pannikedas/Parastas/Memorials on Sundays as some churches do. But instead will be on the Third Saturday of each month after vespers.
