FEAST OF THE HOLY TRINITY!

Dear ones, Christ is Risen! :)

In less than two weeks, on Sunday, June 20, we will celebrate the patronal feast of our church - the feast of the Holy Trinity!
By the grace of God, this year we can not only gather for a joint prayer, but also continue the celebration after!

At 9.30 we will celebrate the Divine Liturgy and Vespers with the reading of the kneeling prayers.

And after the services, we will have a traditional picnic meal in the courtyard of the church. And children of different ages are waiting for specially organized entertainment!

This is very joyful, because it's been a very long time since we've all met together for it.
 
Therefore, dear ones, on Sunday, June 20, we are waiting for you in the church to share the joy of prayer on the day of our patronal feast! And if you are already slowly returning to social life, then with great joy, all together, as a single Parish, we will continue informal communication at the meal. It is very happy that the children, too, tired of the many restrictions for a year, will have fun.

Of course, when I write "one Parish" - I mean everyone who comes to us with an open heart. Therefore, if you have friends who may be far from the Church at all, but who themselves or together with their children would like to come to share the joy of the holiday, get to know us and just get out somewhere — by all means invite them! Maybe even while your friends will not be ready for the Divine service, but to share a meal and get acquainted after — it will be very good and wonderful. We welcome everyone!
 
As for the picnic. Of course, we will definitely organize a festive feast with snacks, hot dishes and sweets. But since we're expecting quite a few people, it wouldn't be a bad idea if you brought something with you. We hope so.
 
Of course, there are still two weeks left, and on the coming Thursday we will have the feast of the Ascension of the Lord, then Sunday, but you can put a tick in the calendar. Indeed, all of us will be very happy to see and communicate with each other celebrating the day of the Holy Trinity and breathing a little easier than last year. Although we remember that the danger is still not over and you need to be attentive to your health.
 
I wish you a peaceful, fruitful and joyful week. May the blessing of God be with you!
 
With love in the Lord,
rector hieromonk Nikon
 

ABOUT MASKS AND SAFETY MEASURES.

Christ is Risen, dear ones!
 
By the grace of God, social life, disrupted by the spread of COVID-19, is being restored step by step and gradually we are returning to our usual way of life. However, the danger to human health is still far from over, and we continue to comply with the necessary sanitary safety measures.
 
As you know, some time ago, the authorities of our state allowed to abandon the use of medical masks for those who are healthy and vaccinated against coronavirus.
 
In our temple, we adhere to the same way: if you are healthy, do not have symptoms of diseases or infections, and have taken a vaccine, then you can refuse to wear a mask at will. Otherwise, you will need to continue using the mask. And, of course, if you feel unwell, and, moreover, know about your possible illness, please stay at home and take time for your health, which is a gift from God.
 
Take care of each other. God's blessing be with you all!
 
With love in the Christ and prayer,
rector hieromonk Nikon
