St. Nicholas Orthodox Church, McKinney, Texas
December 12 / 25 28th Sunday after Pentecost
The Nativity of our Lord falls on Saturday, January 7th. We will have many services on the 6th, and Liturgy on the 7th. This is one of the great feast days of the Church. Please plan to attend.
Father Seraphim is helping at an Orthodox youth service retreat in Pharr, TX, and services are therefore cancelled on Monday, Wednesday and Thursday. On Saturday, 12/31, we will have a reader's Vigil service. On Sunday we will, God willing, have Divine Liturgy as usual. Igumen Gregory will serve.
