Dear Brothers and Sisters in Christ,
Congratulations on the Feast of Transfiguration!
Our diocese holds an annual walking pilgrimage for youth and families over Labor Day Weekend.
Imagine a Procession with the Cross like the one that occurs around the Church at Pascha or at our parish feast — but that travels 10+ miles in a day!
This year, the Walk for Life will be taking place in Northern Indiana, starting at the Nativity of the Mother of God Serbian Orthodox Monastery in New Carlisle. This monastery has a stunning Church and the route of the pilgrimage will take us through quiet woods and lush farm fields. We gather Friday evening, September 1, walk on Saturday & Sunday and depart with renewed peace on Monday, September 4. We will pray together, camp out together, and enjoy an experience rarely found in America.
Each year several members of our parish — some young, some old! — have joined me for this very special, spiritual event. Perhaps you and your family would like to participate?

Services this weekend are as usual: Confession at 5:30 p.m. today, followed by Vigil at 6 p.m. Divine Liturgy on Sunday at 10 a.m.
Sincerely in Christ,
