Events Calendar

  • The Dormition Fast is from August 1 through August 14. The traditional rule is a strict abstinence with mitigations for Saturday & Sunday and the feast of the Transfiguration. The Ruthenian Metropolia has identified this period as a penitential season (Canon 880, § 2). This fast may be observed voluntarily but it is highly recommended for your spiritual & physical wellbeing.
  • The solemn feastday of the Transfiguration of Our Lord is August 6th. Jesus strengthened the apostles’ faith by showing His Divine Glory after He had foretold about His Passion. Father Sid will be blessing first fruits on Friday evening, August 5th, Saturday’s feast day at the 5 PM liturgy and next Sunday’s 10 AM Divine Liturgy. The reference to build three booths for Moses, Elijah, and Christ may be for the Feast of Tabernacles when the Jews would be camping out in the fields for the grape harvest
  • The next healing service on Wednesday, August 10.
  • Monday, August 15 is a holyday of obligation – the Dormition of the Theotokos. Flowers will be blessed on that day.
  • Pilgrimage to Our Lady of Perpetual Help Shrine in Olympia, WA is on August 12 & 13. If you are traveling to the northwest you may want to add this to your itinerary. Their newsletter is in the hall.


Prayer List

One of our cantors, Marcus Loidolt, had emergency surgery last Saturday for a burst appendix while visiting family in Little Falls, MN. He is on the mend with the help of your prayers. Please continue healing prayers for Marcus, Kimetha and the rest of the family so that they return back home soon.


2nd Collection

Thank you for the $148 collected last week. So far we’ve collected $463 towards the goal of $950 for the replacement of Fr. Sid’s white vestments. We will continue the 2nd collection to help defray the cost of the vestments & other church expenses.
