Around the time of Great Lent, we have some Saturdays which are set aside for the commemoration of the those who have fallen asleep in the Lord. We call these days “Saturday of the Souls”. It is customary to celebrate the Divine Liturgy, and to offer the memorial service for all our loved ones, family, and friends. We invite you to prepare Koliva (please note, we will not be mixing the koliva into one bowl, but rather you will take home what you have prepared and offered). To submit the names of your loved ones who have fallen asleep in the Lord, please bring them to church or submit via the online form included in this email (please, do not do both).
May we be strengthened during this season, and truly and completely love Christ our God, with all our heart, mind, and soul. Amen!
This Sunday we remember the restoration of the Holy Icons under the Empress Theodora in 843 AD. Bring an icon to Church!
