Dear brothers and sisters in Christ,

Finally, a day that speaks to us of fall. It is a wonderful day in the Lord!

For the coming week:

We will serve Great Vespers tomorrow evening at 5:00 p.m., followed by Divine Liturgy on Sunday morning at 10:00 a.m. On Wednesday evening we will serve small compline at 6:00 p.m.

Pani and I will be gone next weekend, that of October 6 and 7. Remember that Subdeacon Maximus will be serving a Reader's Service on October 7 at 10:00 a.m. I will generally be pretty close by, and you should not hesitate to call me if a need arises. The only exception will be October 7 through 9, when I will be in California visiting my father. I will still be available by phone during that time however.

At some point next weekend I will get an email out about our schedule during the week of October 8. We will at least begin on Saturday, October 13, with Great Vespers.

Keep in mind that our annual parish meeting witl be on October 28. If you have something that you want put on that agenda for discussion, let me know by October 14.

I hope to see you all this weekend!

In Christ,

Fr. James
