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.

The Dormition of our Most Holy Lady the Theotokos and Ever-Virgin Mary

Troparion:
In giving birth you preserved your virginity,
In falling asleep you did not forsake the world, O Theotokos.
You were translated to life, O Mother of Life,
And by your prayers, you deliver our souls from death.

Kontakion:
Neither the tomb, nor death could hold the Theotokos,
Who is constant in prayer and our firm hope in her intercessions.
For being the Mother of Life,
She was translated to life by the One who dwelt in her virginal womb.
