Dear ones, we are certainly waiting for you on Sunday, the 19th, for the Liturgy of the episcopal rank. Together, in the unity of our hearts, we will offer a joyful prayer to the Lord, we will partake of the Holy Mysteries, we will pray before the gracious icon of the Most Holy Lady. Let's share the joy of communication and meals!
It's big gladness, especially at this difficult time. Make a note in the calendar. :)
And, of course, if you have the opportunity, we are also waiting for you for the Saturday divine service with Vladyka – in a quiet and trembling evening prayer to prepare for Sunday and the Liturgy.
