Wednesday Vespers at 6:30pm will be followed by a Special Christian Education Series walking us through the new parish handbook. While this might sound a little dry, we will be touching on very interesting challenges of parish life. In the first part this coming Wednesday, we will explore the history of the OCA, the history of our Dicoese of the South, and the history of St. Athanasius (our parish). In addition, we’ll touch on why and how St. Athanasius became patron of the OCA Nicholasville community. Wrapping up the evening, we’ll look at how our parish is structured and our Orthodox model of leadership on all levels!
St. Elizabeth Sisterhood will meet on Thursday, September 10, 7-9pm, at the home of Alina Rizea Rusu. All ladies of the parish are invited. Please bring a food or drink to share as we enjoy fellowship and discuss ideas for activities for the upcoming year.
