- What a joy and tremendous blessing it was to have the Hawaii myrrh-streaming icon with us this past Sunday. The attendance at the Liturgy was fantastic... our little church was bursting at the seams with all of those who had come to honor the Mother of God and to seek her intercessions. It was truly a grace filled day and we pray that this grace which was bestowed upon us so generously will remain in our hearts for a long time!
- Services this week for the Nativity of the Mother of God will be: Vigil at 6pm on Friday, Sept 20th; and Liturgy at 9am on Saturday, Sept 21st.
- September 1 marks the beginning of the Church New Year. As such, it is now time to review your membership. The cost of membership is $120 per adult 18 and over and covers your membership from 9/1/2019 to 9/1/2020. Membership is a way of showing your commitment to the parish and gives you voting privileges, most specifically for our annual parish meeting which will take place this year on Sunday, September 22nd.
