Memorial Sunday and St. Nicholas Day Celebrations
Fr. George thanks everyone who worked on our Mini Hafli. We accomplished what we planned and learned that we can develop different ways to be successful.
A reminder that we are in the Nativity Fast from now until Christmas. To learn more about why we fast, read this article on our website from Fr. Tom Hopko.
We're opening a Zoom room up for our parish kids to come together and celebrate the feast day of St. Nicholas. There will be a time for the kids to talk and catch up, and Mr. Symon will continue our annual tradition of reading the life of St. Nicholas. We have emailed out the Zoom information and posted it in our Facebook Groups. If you don't have it, please email firstname.lastname@example.org. For the safety of everyone attending, there is a waiting room when you join before you're brought into the party by Dn. Thom. A special thank you to Ruthie and Symon for helping to put this together.
Learn more about St. Nicholas and how to celebrate his feast day here on our website.
On the first Sunday of each month, we remember those from our parish who have fallen asleep in the Lord over the years. This Sunday, we'll be praying the Trisagion for those we have lost in the month of December. Please, join us in praying for the souls of:
May their memories be eternal.
