For the Liturgy this Saturday morning, Father David asks everyone to bring an already prepared list of names of those Orthodox departed family members or friends that you wish to be remembered.

Confessions: Confessions are before or after Vespers on Saturdays and before the Hours on Sundays; also by appointment.

Volunteering: think about it! Is there just one little thing you could manage to do to help our Church, especially as an offering to the Lord during Lent?

The ladies/men of the Church who are bravely cooking for coffee hour, cleaning the church, washing dishes, baking prosphora, bringing flowers and shoveling snow are short in number and would very much appreciate some help!

If you are available to help, please contact Crystal Hyun or Heather & Dave Decaire. Everyone is encouraged to bring a small side dish each Sunday to supplement the main dish. Or just bring something! Some bread, crackers, fruit, cookies, dessert are just a few little suggestions. Men are also needed to shovel the front stairs, put sand on icy patches around the exterior of the church, clean candle stands, empty garbage, etc.

Let's all thank those ladies/men for the work they have faithfully done and are continuing to do! May we all do whatever we are able to do for the Lord and to His glory.

Sunday of Orthodoxy, March 8 at 5 p.m: at St. Antonios Orthodox Church, corner of Chebucto and Windsor Streets, Halifax.
