Christ is Born! Another blessed Nativity Liturgy followed by traditional Christmas carols and fellowship.
On Saturday and Sunday, November 2/3, Archbishop Alexander visited us for his second time. On Sunday he ordained Colin to the Sub-diaconate and awarded a golden cross to Fr. Theophan. The services were beautiful and grace-filled and it was wonderful to fellowship and getting to know our Archbishop. May God grant him many years! A big thank you goes out to the choir, altar servers, bell-ringers, our photographer and all who organized, prepared food, helped clean up.
