Phillips Fast

The Typicon states: According to the forty-day tradition, the Phillip’s Fast in preparation for Christmas began on Thursday, Nov. 15. During the fast it was the custom to observe a strict abstinence on Monday, Wednesday and Friday and a lesser abstinence on Tuesday and Thursday. The fast is observed more strictly from December 10 (in some traditions) or from December 20 (in other traditions), with daily strict abstinence, and a mitigated abstinence (wine & oil) on Saturday and Sunday. This fast may be observed voluntarily, partially or in its entirety.



Fr. Innocenti is asking if anyone has a headboard to donate for a queen/full-size bed. Please call the rectory.

Please remember the sick of the parish and their family & friends. May God’s healing power be upon them.

Second collection is for the victims of Hurricane Sandy.
