Important information regarding bus route 15, which services our neighbourhood: Some of you depend on this route to come to church. Halifax Transit is looking at changes to its service which may impact us. We encourage you all (even if you drive to church) to visit the site and view the proposed changes for the #15 route and give your feedback to ensure that we continue to have adequate access by bus.
Confessions: Confession is a very important part of preparing oneself for Pascha. Please contact Fr Vladimir to schedule a time before Sat Vespers (alternate arrangements may be possible for those living outside of Halifax). For those desiring confession this weekend, please contact Fr Vladimir by Thursday night, as he'll be travelling to Halifax during the day on Friday.
Fr. Matthew Baker: Giving to others in need should be a part of our fasting discipline. If we look around, we can easily see many in need. On the Orthodox Church of America website, news has been posted that Fr. Matthew Baker, a priest of the Greek Orthodox Archdiocese in the US, was killed in a car accident returning home after celebrating Sunday of Orthodoxy Vespers. He leaves behind Presvytera Katherine and 6 young children. A collection is set up to assist Fr. Matthew's family. Let us all pray for the repose of Fr. Matthew and pray for his family in their time of need. May Fr. Matthew's memory be eternal!
