From Fr. Raphael Barberg: I would like to invite you to the celebration of our patronal feast, James the Apostle and Brother of the Lord, October 23. The festivities will include:
- a Great Vespers served on Thursday evening October 22 which will include Litia, Artoklasia and anointing with the Oil of Gladness, to be followed by a reception. This will all begin at 6:00pm.
- The morning of Friday the 23rd we will serve Festal Matins beginning at 8:30am followed by the Divine Liturgy of St. James beginning approximately 10:00am. This will be followed by an informal brunch.
It is always such a blessing and encouragement to have our brothers and sisters celebrate with us on our patron’s feast day! And of course, please keep us in your holy prayers as we remember you in our own.
