Blessing of Vehicles TODAY, July 24, 2016
As we approach the feast of the Holy Prophet Elijah (July 20) Fr. Vincent will be blessing “chariots” (vehicles) after the Divine Liturgy.
Starting on Wednesday, September 7 (7-9 PM), and continuing for 8 weeks, Fr. Vincent will be leading another group study on the book “Introducing the Orthodox Church: Its Faith and Life” by Fr. Anthony Coniaris. This class is ideal not only for Orthodox who would like to deepen their understanding of their Orthodox Faith, but is also a great introduction to the Faith for any non-Orthodox who would like to understand a bit more about the Orthodox Church (what it believes and teaches, and why). There will be a fee of $20 to cover the cost of your book (provided at the first meeting). Those who have previously taken the class are welcome to join in again. There is a signup sheet on the bulletin board.
2017 Canadian Archdiocesan Assembly
Our parish has been chosen by Archbishop Irénée and the Archdiocesan Council to host the 2017 Canadian Archdiocesan Assembly. This week-long event will take place July 25-28, 2017. As you can imagine there is a lot of work that will need to be done by our parish during the next year in preparation for hosting all the clergy, as well as lay delegates, observers, and special guests from across our country (and some from the U.S.) Please keep this assembly in the forefront of your prayers, and as the various committees are developed to get all the necessary work accomplished, prayerfully consider how you can be involved in helping prepare for this special occasion.
