A NOTE TO OUR VISITORS
We are glad to have you worshipping with us today. Please join us for fellowship immediately following the Liturgy in the Fellowship Hall coffee room.
Communion is a sign of unity of our faith. Only Orthodox Christians that have prepared themselves through prayer, fasting, and periodic confession are permitted to participate in the Sacrament of Holy Communion. We welcome all present, however, to partake of the blessed bread, which is distributed at the end of the service.
