Following the 12th of December, the Nativity Fast intensifies. The last two weeks of the Fast are a time of more intense prepariation. The faithful are exhorted to take advantage of the Mystery of Holy Confession. We are blessed by the Church to eat fish on the 16th and 17th of the month. Following this, there is no fish until we break the fast on the Feast of the Nativity.
Brothers and sisters: The schedule for the Feast of the Nativity According to the Flesh of Our Lord and God and Savior, Jesus Christ is now on the website calendar. Please look at the services and consider how much your life will be enriched by attending them.
