Dear brothers and sisters in Christ,

 

This week the email is both early and short.  I have to be out of town tomorrow, so I wanted to try to get something out fairly quickly.  I promise to return to long winded form next week!
 
The coming week:  This weekend we will serve Great Vespers on Saturday night at 6:00 p.m., with Divine Liturgy for the Sunday of the Fathers of the First Ecumenical Council on Sunday morning at 10:00 a.m.
 
We will NOT have our usual Wednesday evening service and inquirers class.  I have to be in Durham Wednesday and will return Thursday evening.
 
The weekend following this one is Holy Pentecost.  The day of the descent of the Holy Spirit is a deeply meaningful one.  On the day before, Saturday, June 15, we will have our last Soul Saturday Liturgy of the year.
 
I hope to see you all this weekend!  And, if you have not been in church much since Pascha, I particularly forward to seeing you!
 
 
In Christ,
 
Fr. James
