Pilgrimage to Hermitage of the Holy Cross & other opportunities

Dear Brothers and Sisters in Christ,
May the Lord bless you!
As always our beloved monastery, the Hermitage of the Holy Cross, will hold it’s annual pilgrimage on the weekend after the Exaltation of the Cross — Sept. 30-Oct. 1 this year.
We will only have a reader’s service next Sunday, Oct. 1 at St. George, since many of our parishioners join in this pilgrimage. Look here for more information about the pilgrimage: https://www.holycross-hermitage.com/blogs/news/pilgrimage-weekend-2017
One of our parishioners has rented a cabin at the State Park nearby and is looking for others with whom to share it. Please contact Stephen & Helen Eble at (513) 417-9264 if you are interested.
Another parishioner is looking to share a ride, please let me know if you can help out with transportation.
To help support the monastery, we will be making a special collection tomorrow, Sunday, Sept. 24. Please be generous in your support of these monastics who pray for us regularly and offer the whole world a place of spiritual refuge!
If you do not join the pilgrimage, you may be interested in a talk being given at Christ the Savior parish next Saturday night when we will not have services: https://www.christthesavioroca.org/news_170915_1.html
Dr. Kizenko was one of my professors in seminary! Please greet her warmly.
 
Finally, as a reminder for parishioners who are not members of Facebook, note that our parish Facebook page is public. That is, you can see it even if you are not a member of Facebook. Look here for a recent video from our Russian Festival: https://www.facebook.com/pg/StGeorgeCincinnati/videos/
Enjoy!
 
Sincerely in Christ,
priest Daniel
