Storing up September

September in Kentucky is one of the most beautiful of times here: “Indian Summer.” September is also the month when parish life tends to return to “normal.” Summertime travels have concluded. The children and young adults are back in school. We welcome new college students to our community. Sunday School resumes, as does our youth group. Fr. Justin begins new catechesis (instruction) series in this month, as well. We invite you to join us for any of our services and events. Among our many upcoming events coming up (beyond our normal schedule of services):

  • Aug. 29: Beheading of St. John the Baptist (Great Vespers Sun. 6:30pm & Liturgy Mon. 9:30am)
