  • Preparing for Great and Holy Lent:
    • We take this opportunity to provide the fasting regulations for this Penitential Season, as has been the tradition of our bishops  since the canonical establishment of the Diocese in 1938.  Continuing in that spirit, the following fasting regulations are now in effect for all clergy and laity:
      • March 15 - Clean Monday - the first day of Lent is a strict day of abstinence; no dairy or meat may be eaten
      • All Wednesdays and Fridays during this entire Season are days of abstinence from meat
      • For the evening Presanctified Liturgies, a minimal 3 hour fast from all food and drink must be observed before the reception of Holy Communion (normal fasting from midnight is still practiced before the liturgies of St. John Chrysostom and St. Basil the Great)
      • April 26 through April 29 - Meat and meat products may not be eaten all of Holy Week
      • April 30 and May 1 - Great and Holy Friday and Great and Holy Saturday - days of strict abstinence; no diary or meat may be eaten
      • May 2 - Great Lent is broken with the reception of Holy Communion on the Feast of Feasts - Great and Holy Pascha Sunday
  • Parish Needs​
    • Snow Plow - This year's invoice has arrived.  It is $1,900.00.  Please help as you can.​
    • Broken Window - It seems a bird accident has damaged the window by the breezeway door.  Repair is estimated to be $600.00.  Please help as you can.
    • Thank you in advance for small and big monetary assistance!
  • We keep our first responders and medical professionals in our thoughts and prayers during this difficult time.  We also pray for those inflicted with this terrible disease that they may have a speedy recovery.  We remember and pray for those who have fallen asleep in the Lord as a result of COVID.  May their Memories be Eternal!​​​​​
