Announcements

The Great Fast and Cheesefare

Today is the last day before the start of the Great Fast. During the Great Fast we’re encouraged to abstain from certain foods like meat and dairy.  On Cheesefare Sunday we are saying goodbye to dairy. The Great Fast period is a preparation for the greatest feast of the year – Pascha. The forty days symbolize the forty years the Israelites wandered in the desert. The Divine Liturgy of the Presanctified Gifts will be celebrated on Wednesday and Fridays at our parish. We will continue to have the Ancient Healing Service on the 2nd & 4th Wednesdays during the Great Fast. On those weeks the Liturgy of Presanctified Gifts will be celebrated on Monday instead of Wednesday. We’re the only nearby Catholic Church that celebrates this ancient and beautiful Liturgy of Presanctified Gifts for 6 weeks in a row. It’s up to you to choose to take advantage of these services. Encourage others to immerse themselves in this special gift of the Eastern Catholic Church.

Listen to the 2011 Lenten Pastorial Letter “A Passion for Christ” from Most Reverend John M Kudrick, our Bishop of Eparchy of Parma.  Here’s an article on fasting.

Parish Council Meeting

The parish council and other interested parishioners attended last Wednesday evening’s meeting. The 17 people who attended were briefed on numerous projects. Seven people are performing follow-ups for the next meeting on Wednesday, March 16. You’re invited to attend and bring your ideas.

Chrismation

Mike and Tauna Piland are receiving the sacraments of Chrismation & Holy Eucharist today. God grant your servants peace, health and happiness for many happy years. Congratulations!

Thank you
