For our daily Paraklesis services preparing for the feast of the Dormition, please give me the names of your loved ones so that we can pray for their health and salvation. If you have given me the names recently, you do not need to do so again. Please specify whether you would like all or some of these names to be published in our bulletin so that our parishioners may add them to their daily prayers.
