November Events


  ADVENT   runs until Christmas  

About the Advent Fast:  As in all fasts, we each fast to the best of our ability and refrain from observing anyone else's practices. Whatever you do at your own home, please bring only permitted foods to share at our after-liturgy meals.
  • Fish is permitted on weekends & some feast days. See your St. Tikhon liturgical calendar for all fasting details. 
  • You are particularly encouraged to come to confession during the fast. The usual times are after the regular 6:30 pm Wednesday & Saturday evening services. 
  • During a fast, we strive to increase our prayer life. If you need help with your prayer rule, please speak to Fr. Lawrence.
  • During a fast, we also seek more opportunities to give charitably to others. Contributing to our food bank basket and Diakonia bin helping the Salvation Army Gateway of Hope is one way to do this at our own parish, but there are many other ways as well.
