Decorating the church for the feast - We need your help! It is traditional to bring branches and greenery to decorate the church for Pentecost. If you can cut down some branches (from your yard please, not your neighbour's) and bring some greenery, please come to church before Sat Vespers between 5-5:30 pm to help decorate. I'll bring ferns and greenery to make some bouquets.
