Announcements

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.


"Mighty Mites" Collection

This week, we collected $30 for Russian American Community Services, which does charitable work both in the US and in Russia.

Next week, we will collect for Flowers for Nativity.
