The Apostles' Fast has begun and will continue until 12 July when we celebrate the feast. Everyone is advised to seek spiritual guidance regarding how to fast. Please note that you if you have not been given a blessing to not fast, you may not receive Holy Communion. When our Holy Mother the Church gives us fasting as a medicine for our souls and we refuse to take the medicine we are cutting ourselves off from her, thus voluntarily excommunicating ourselves.
Summer Club has begun! The children of the parish will be gathering at church every Tuesday and Thursday from 6:30 p.m. - 9:00 p.m. for prayer, food, play, and studying for the Mahragan al-Keraza and YSC events in late summer.
