Feast of the Nativity of our Lord, God and Saviour Jesus Christ

Sat Jan 6: vigil 9:00 pm followed by potluck meal

No services Sunday Jan 7

Confessions: Confession is an integral part of our preparation for the feast of the Nativity and is required in order to receive the Eucharist at the feast. Please contact Father Vladimir as soon as possible to arrange a time. Confessions are normally heard Saturday before Vespers. Please note that confessions will not be possible the evening of Jan 6 before the vigil. For those coming from out of town, please discuss suitable arrangements with Fr. Vladimir. Fr. Vladimir can be reached by email and requests for confessions for the following Saturday should be sent before noon on Sat as after that point, he will not be able to check his emails while travelling to Halifax for the weekend.

Parking at the church for Nativity: Please remember that parking is limited, please be mindful in how you park to allow access and room for others. Should the parking lot be full, latecomers might have to park on Fergusons Cove Road across from the church, but note the winter parking ban is now in effect - for updates, please visit https://www.halifax.ca/transportation/winter-operations. With extra cars and people in the parking lot and possible slippery conditions, please use extra care entering the driveway. Thank you for your cooperation.
