Feast of the Meeting of the Lord

This Wednesday at 7.00 pm, instead of the usual Vespers, we will serve a Vesperal Liturgy for the Feast of the Meeting of the Lord.  A festal meal will follow.  Please bring whatever candles or incense you have for your icon corner to be blessed at the conclusion of the Liturgy.

Just a reminder to all that our annual Congregational Meeting is this Sunday Jan. 29, held in the church hall after the Divine Liturgy.  Please pray that the Lord may give us wisdom as we deliberate and plan for the coming year.  Come and hear the good news regarding our growing Building Fund.

Blessing the Fraser, Theophany 2012


This past Sunday January 8, St. Herman's gathered at our customary place by the Fraser River in Langley to ask God's blessing upon it, as we do every Theophany. We were happy to be joined by Fr. Gillis and his parishioners from Holy Nativity Antiochian Church. Hot chocolate and a fire made for a warm time of fellowship.

Welcome to the new website!

As you can see, we are updating the look of our website, simplifying it so that visitors can easily learn what our parish is about. The tabs give snapshots of our clergy, our parish history, our various ministries, images of our life together, as well as ways to contact us. The links to other sites provide access to our priest's blog ("Straight from the Heart"), to the Coffee Cup Commentaries, our priest's New Testament podcast, available through Ancient Faith Radio, to our parish blog, "Spruce Island" (named for the island where St. Herman lived), and to the official website of the OCA. We hope that after visiting our website, you will come to visit us in person and allow us the privilege of welcoming you into our midst.
