TODAY

  • Oratorical festival after the Liturgy

  • The Book Store will be open again on Sunday, February 24, during fellowship. During Great Lent, we take together a journey of prayer, fasting, alms-giving, and learning.  The following books are recommended to help us along the way:

    • Great Lent Journey to Pascha by Fr. Alexander Schmemann

    • The Lenten Spring by Fr. Thomas Hopko

    • First Fruits of Prayer: A Forty-Day Journey through the Canon of St. Andrew by Kh. Frederica Mathewes-Green

You may place your order by phone, email or on Sunday at the bookstore. February 24 will be the last day before Lent begins to order books. The book store will again accept orders March 17 through March 31 if you would like to order gifts  for Pascha. Books are great basket gifts for children. There are many books about Lent and Holy Week for children of all ages. Also there is a NEW! Holy Week-Easter Service Book by Fr. George Papadeas.
