During the season of the Pentecost, which extends from the Pasch (Easter) to the Descent of the Holy Spirit, as a sign of the joy of the Resurrection we do not make any bows, nor do we kneel. The Council of Nicea (325) gave us the following rules regarding this matter: “Since there are some who kneel on the day of Lord and during the season of the Pentecost, for the sake of uniformity in all eparchies, the council decrees that during that time prayers be offered up to God while standing”.

SANCTUARY LIGHT: The Sanctuary Light is requested to burn this week April 3-10 by Helen Sawka & Family in memory of Leon Sawka & Decker Families.

OUR PARISH FAMILY DINNER: On Sunday, May 2, 2010, 11:30 AM, Metropolitan Stefan Soroka will celebrate the Divine Liturgy and the blessing of the new Icon. Following the Divine Liturgy all parishioners and their families are invited to our Parish Family dinner in the Church Hall. Please fill in the inserted reservation if you wish to attend this celebration. We would like to have an approximate count for the preparations. All Parishioners and their families are welcome to be a part of this special occasion. Please try to be a part of this to welcome our Bishop Metropolitan Stefan Soroka.

MAY LOTTERY TICKETS: Tickets for the May Lottery are available. If you can possibly sell a few tickets and purchase for yourself it will be greatly appreciated.
