To assist Fr. Vincent in the blessing of the graves of your family members, please sign your name to the sign-up sheet on the bulletin board in the narthex.
It is traditional in the Orthodox Church to bless the graves of our loved ones during the Paschal season. As we bless the graves with Holy Water, we also pray that the Lord would have mercy on our loved ones, and grant them a place of brightness, a place of refreshment, and a place of rest, where all sickness, sighing, and sorrow have fled away. We also pray that God would forgive all the sins which they have committed in this life, and bestow upon them His bountiful love. What a wonderful way that we can still be a part of our loved one's lives, even after they after departed this life from us. Some people even take a lunch to the grave blessing with them, to share with their family at the grave after the grave blessing.

ST. HERMAN'S MEMORIAL FUND
The St. Herman's Memorial Fund is a way to remember the faithful departed by family and friends who want to pay tribute to a life well lived. You may donate funds to a specific parish project (such as the Icon Fund), or to the general memorial fund. Funds donated to the general memorial fund ensures that the legacy of our loved ones will live on, as the money will be used to help fund various ministries of the parish, and to help provide training for our leaders. Please consider donating to this fund in memory of your loved ones. You are also encouraged to remember our parish in your estate planning.
