Great Lent 2017

Posted on Updated on

Our Lenten journey is off to a start! We’ve already celebrated Forgiveness Vespers and heard of repentance and God’s mercy in the Canon of St. Andrew. Looking forward, the Presanctified Liturgy will be celebrated each Wednesday at 5:30pm, with a Lenten potluck meal to follow.

Fr. William will also be holding catechism classes each Tuesday at 7pm. Although catechism class is geared towards those who are considering being baptized/chrismated into the Church, anyone who would like to learn more about their faith is welcome to attend.

Our new iconstasis was ready just in time for the beginning of Lent!

Welcome Fr. William & Matushka Jillian!

Posted on

Sunday July 31st proved to be a joy-filled day, rejoicing in God’s provision for His Church. We welcomed our new parish Priest, Father William, along with his wife Jillian, as he officially began shepherding Holy Resurrection. Our previous parish Priest, Father Oliver concelebrated with Fr. Will. We were able to reflect on how God has blessed this mission up to the present and look forward to what God has in store for our future. Here are a few pictures celebrating the day:

What a joyous night celebrating the Resurrection of our Lord! It is always a joy to hear the singing, the shouts of “Truly, He is Risen” in many languages, seeing little ones asleep next to their parents! Thank you to Fr. Oliver for serving in the middle of his Air National Guard drill weekend and while fighting off a cold. Enjoy these photos:

We stood before our Creator’s tomb Friday evening, hearing the Lamentations. Pictured is Fr. Oliver standing before the Epitaphios during the reading of Psalm 119. We’re looking forward to a crowded church tomorrow evening celebrating the Resurrection of our Lord!
