Exploring the Feasts of the Church
Starting Wednesday, September 10, Fr. Vincent will be starting a series of weekly Bible Studies exploring the 12 major feasts of the Orthodox Church. Each week we will look at one feast (including its Scripture readings, icon, and hymns) and explore what it means to our lives today. St. John of Kronstadt once said: “We should not allow ourselves to celebrate any Christian feast without seriously considering: what is its meaning and what is its purpose; what is our responsibility toward it? … Then the feast will become profitable for our soul’s salvation.” This Bible Study will take place downstairs in the Church fellowship hall on Wednesday evenings from 7-8:30 p.m. Everyone is invited to join us for these educational and inspirational studies.
An Archdiocesan Assembly will be taking place Thursday, October 2, 2014 in Ottawa. The purpose of this one-day assembly will be to vote on whether or not our Canadian Archdiocese approves of the nomination of His Grace Bishop Irénée to become our ruling Bishop. In addition to the priest, our parish will also send one lay delegate to represent the parish.
Special Parish Meeting of Stewards
A vote to determine who will represent our parish at this year’s Archdiocesan assembly will take place at a special meeting following the Divine Liturgy Sunday, August 31.
