Christ is risen!
On Sunday, May 12, we celebrated the Feast of Holy Myrrh-bearing Women, Mother's Day, and birthdays of Nadezhda and Slavica. Sunday School children made a wonderful present for all the ladies of the parish - begonia plants!
Father Aleksey spoke with children about the courage, faith, and love of the holy myrrh-bearers and how our mothers share the same qualities.
At the end of the Liturgy we took a group photo of our women.
In short, we had another wonderfully busy day here.
Glory to God for all things!
On Sunday, May 14, we celebrated the Divine Liturgy during which we remembered all of our mothers, both for the repose of the departed and for the health of the living. At the end of the Liturgy we sang many years to them and handed out flowers. The Fellowship crew and Matushka prepared light brunch for everyone.
Happy Mother's Day to all our mothers!
