This Week's Divine Services
We begin this week with a parastas in memory of our beloved +Metropolitan Nicholas, on the sixth anniversary of his repose in the Lord. May his memory be eternal! Our Lenten walk with Christ continues with Lenten Matins on Wednesday morning and the Divine Liturgy of the Presanctified Gifts on Friday evening. The third Soul Saturday takes place on March 18th at 9:00 am. Have you attended a Soul Saturday Liturgy this year? It is a type of almsgiving to remember the departed. If we give prayers to the departed we will receive prayers after we leave this life, prayers which we may sorely need. We should make it a habit to attend at least ONE Soul Saturday each Lent. May God bless our efforts!
