Dear brothers and sisters in Christ,
CHRIST IS RISEN!!!
May God bless you as we continue to celebrate the joyous resurrection of our Lord.
This morning I read a beautiful, informative, and fitting tribute to our newly reposed first hierarch Metropolitan Hilarion. I only met him a couple of times, but his reputation for kindness and warmth were clearly evident in the brief encounters that I was blessed to have with him. Fr Victor Potapov, rector of the cathedral in Washington D.C. knew Vladyka very well and provides a wonderful eulogy here: The Russian Orthodox Church Outside of Russia - Official Website (synod.com)
Weekly Bible Studies continue this Wednesday at 7pm. We are continuing our study of the Epistle of the Apostle Paul to the Romans. The Zoom link is: https://us02web.zoom.us/j/87305358799?pwd=WnpBM2UyU1pMV01VZGxtSEVzbTR6UT09
We will not have our Saturday class this coming Saturday as I will be out of town substituting at another parish. Fr Andrew will be serving at St Herman’s.
Monday the 30th there will be festivities at Ft Ross for Memorial Day. Liturgy will be at 9:30am followed by a procession to the cemetery and a Litya for the departed. After the time at Ft Ross, all are invited to the Kazan Mother of God Church in Guerneville for a pot-luck lunch.
