37th Sunday After Pentecost / Publican & Pharisee Sunday
The focus this weekend is on the theme from St. Luke’s account of the Publican (tax-collector) & Pharisee (Luke 18:10-14). Also, we begin to use the service book called the Lenten Triodion, which supplies us with additional pre-Lenten hymns that we will continue to use through Pascha.
On Wednesday, February 24 we will pray an Akathist to St. John the Baptist at 11am in commemoration of the 1st & 2nd Finding of the Honorable Head of the Holy Glorious Prophet, Forerunner, and Baptist of the Lord, John.
Wednesday Vespers will be served as usual at 6:30pm with the Christian Education class meeting from 7:20-8:20pm to discuss part 6, “The Dark Times of Orthodoxy: Life under the Turks, Dealing with Nationalism, and the Crises Leading up to the 20th Century,” of the ongoing series. As always, everyone is welcome to attend this weekly class. We also plan to livestream the class.
