On Tuesday, Oct. 18, we served the Akathist to St James, the brother of the Lord, before his relics, which are visiting our parish for a few weeks.
The service was very prayerful and the fellowship afterwards lively.
Join us for the Supplicatory Moleben service on Sunday, Oct. 23, after the Liturgy.

With the blessing of His Grace John, Bishop of Naro-Fominsk, we have received the relics of Apostle James, the brother of the Lord. We will have them for a few weeks, during which they will be available for veneration, and we'll serve an Akathist and Moleben to St James.
The Akathist will be on Tuesday, October 18th, at 7pm, with refreshments and fellowship afterwards.
The text of the Akathist can be downloaded here.
Also, to get familiar with this glorious saint, you can read his life and his Epistle.
