New Location and Holy Week!
By God's grace we are at our new location:
237 Sackville Street
(Enter by the three doors at street level on Sackville Ave. Once inside, head downstairs and enter the first door on the right.)
There is no dedicated parking so you may wish to use street parking or the Green P lot across from the church.
We wish to thank everyone who helped us move and St George's Macedono-Bulgarian Orthodox Church for hosting us for the last two months. We are truly blessed by the generosity we have been shown and God's amazing hand in all of this.
The next week is a busy one as we journey to the Cross and on to the Joyous Resurrection. Come, join us! As Christ invited us, "keep watch with Me."
What is this about?
There is a signup sheet for our tradition of breaking the fast of Pascha after liturgy. Do sign up if you can and don't feel like you can't stay if you dont bring anything, there will be a lot of food.
Other Ways to Help Out
Reception of Jolene and Rowan
As you may have heard, with the bishop's blessing we will be receiving Jolene and Rowan through Chrismation into the Orthodox church on St. Basil's Liturgy on Great and Holy Saturday. Prayers would be appreciated for their journey.
Resources for Parents
Holy Week is a wonderful, special week for Orthodox Christians. It is also filled with long services that can be challenging to anyone, but especially to young children. This post offers suggestions for Holy Week that can help to make Holy Week more meaningful for children of different ages. There are many ideas here. They range from ideas of ways to prepare yourself for the week to ways to help your children understand the services to crafty things you can do together.
Check out these ideas if you have time, and apply any that you wish. Please do not let these many suggestions discourage you, especially if you do not have the energy to add “one more thing” to your family’s schedule! You know your family, and what each member needs the most. So live accordingly!
Above all, let us love our Lord and each other throughout Holy Week. May we live this week together, in awe of His compassion and mercy, and in gratitude for His great gift to us. May all that we do (or do not do!) prepare us to celebrate His holy resurrection!
SEE YOU AT THE FINISH LINE!
