Feast of Pentecost Hierarchical Visitation
On Saturday, June 18, during our Pentecost Vigil, St. Herman's will be blessed with a visit from His Eminence Archbishop Irénée. As he will be visiting other parishes during his short visit to our area, this will be the only time that he will be in our parish until our Feast Day in December. Pentecost Vigil starts at 6 PM. Please make a point of being at the service that evening for this festal occasion, and to join us in prayer with our Archpastor leading us.
Fr. Vincent is trying to determine whether or not there is a need to teach another Orthodoxy 101 class once again this fall. It would run for the 8 Wednesday evenings in September and October, 7-9 PM. If this is something that you are interested in being a part of, or have a friend who would like to learn more about the Orthodox Faith, please let him know as soon as you can.
