Dear Brothers and Sisters in Christ,
May the Lord bless you!
We gather tonight and tomorrow morning to remember the Nativity of St. John the Baptist, he whom the Lord called the greatest of the prophets! (see Luke 7:28)
Confession begins at 6 p.m. followed by Vigil at 6:30 p.m. tonight and Divine Liturgy at 9 a.m. tomorrow.
As many of you have noticed, we have a problem with water leaking into the altar so that the drywall in the apse is discolored and damaged. For more than 18 months we have been investigating this problem and trying to make our contractor, Bruns, fulfill its warranty and complete the needed repairs. While we don’t yet know when the repair work will begin, we do have a commitment from Bruns to do the work. To seek God’s help in this important job — without it we cannot safely install iconography on the walls in the altar — we will serve a moleben before the start of any good work this coming Sunday at the end of the liturgy. Please join us to pray for God’s assistance!
On Saturday confession begins at 5:30 p.m. followed by Vigil at 6 p.m. Divine Liturgy on Sunday starts at 10 a.m.
Sincerely in Christ,
