My Dear Brothers & Sisters,
Here we go again! It may seem calm and peaceful now with everyone beginning their day as normal but March, which came in like a lion is staying that way! We will not be having Presanctified Liturgy on Wednesday but will move everything to Friday at 6:00 p.m. instead of the Akathist. Confession which is scheduled for 4:00 p.m. on Thursday will be held as planned.
On Saturday morning I will be at church around 9:00 a.m. to begin cleaning and you are welcomed to join in. The major Pre-Pascha Clean-up will be after Coffee Hour on Sunday.
Saturday evening at 5:00 p.m. we will celebrate the Great Feast of the Annunciation with Great Vespers with Litya and on Sunday Festal Divine Liturgy at 9:00 a.m. Again following Coffee Hour Pre-Pascha Clean-up will be undertaken.
Sunday afternoon all the Orthodox parishes in Connecticut will gather with His Eminence, Archbishop Nikon at Three Saints, Ansonia at 4:00 p.m. for the Sacrament of Holy Unction. Let us pray that as we enter the Week of Palms spring will finally arrive and we will be able to pray and celebrate Passion Week without alterations!
