Wednesday October 31
Fr. Lawrence Farley
This Wednesday October 31, children are welcome to come early to church at 6.15 p.m. in costume for a brief time in the church hall with our Sunday School leader. There will be time a craft before Vespers, which will be served in the Church at the normal time of 7.00 p.m.
Immediately before Vespers, Fr. Lawrence will explain the icon of the feast of the day November 1, that of Sts. Cosmas and Damian, Holy Unmercenary Physicians. He will also explain the icon of All Saints, which feast is served in the Orthodox Church on the Sunday following Pentecost, and in the western church October 31. After the service, the Sunday School leader will provide the children present with candy, in honour of Sts. Cosmas and Damian, and of all the saints.
