Special Announcements

Dear Faithful of Saints Peter and Paul

A blessed Feast of the Cross.  

The Metropolitan has requested as many of the faithful who are able to attend Sunday Liturgy at St. Basil.  On Sunday he will consecrate their Church and wants as many of the faithful to be present and participate in the consecration of the Church.  Consecrating a church usually only happens once in its history so this will be a historic event.  All are encouraged to attend Liturgy Saturday at 10 am for the Feast of the Cross and Sunday (8:45am Orthros and 10:00am Liturgy) for the consecration of the Church and Liturgy.  Try to arrive by 9:30 am to be present for the consecration. 

We will have Great Vespers Saturday night at the normal time and the pre-teen/teen Sunday School will still meet at Subdeacon Jason's home for a game night after Great Vespers.  

For those who are not able to attend St. Basil on Sunday Dn Michael will lead Orthros, Hours and Typika with communion on Sunday at Saints Peter and Paul at the normal times.

Forgive me
