Holy Friday Archbishop MARK to Visit

On Holy Friday, April 29th, His Eminence Archbishop MARK will join us for both Holy Friday Vespers in the afternoon and Matins in the evening. It is a great honor to share this holy day with our Arch-pastor and bishop. Please be sure to attend!

Blessing of Baskets

The ancient Christian practice of blessing food before it is eaten took on a new dimension in Slavic Orthodox lands at the celebration of the great Feast of Pascha. Customarily, foods from which one was fasting would be brought to the Church for blessing by the priest after Paschal Liturgy. We continue this tradition, and encourage everyone to prepare a basket of Paschal foods for blessing. Traditionally, this includes bread with a candle, eggs, butter, cheese, kielbasa and other meats. Cultural variations (such as chocolates or other foods and breads) are also most suitable for Pascha baskets. Food baskets should be brought to the parish hall before services begin on Pascha night to be blessed immediately following Paschal Liturgy.

Pascha Flowers

Due to Pascha's May 1st date this year, we will not be able to order lilies for the tomb. We will, of course, have a beautiful spring floral display. We will be accepting flower fund donations with or without memorials. The slips are in the narthex. Those who give donations may choose a plant to take home after Pascha. Plants will also be delivered to shut-ins and any left will be available for planting in the church beds. Thank you for your understanding.

No Study Groups During Holy Week and Bright Week

Our Study Groups will take a break during Holy Week and Bright Week. We will resume on Thursday May12th at 10 AM.

Spring Rummage Sale May 21st

We have set a date of Saturday, May 21 for our Spring rummage sale. Please begin setting aside any of your attic treasures of clothes, household items, furniture, knick knacks, etc. Also, please save the date as we can use your help anytime before, during, and after the sale. It's fun to help with the sale and it helps to build relationships in our community and among our parishioners, all while raising money for St. Michael's. Further details will be provided as we get closer to May.
