On Wednesday April 5th at 7 pm the Sacrament of Holy Unction will be served at our Church. Everyone is invited! The Holy Church has established this sacrament based on the Epistle of Holy Apostle James 5: 14-15: “14 Is anyone among you sick? Let them call the elders of the church to pray over them and anoint them with oil in the name of the Lord. 15 And the prayer offered in faith will make the sick person well; the Lord will raise them up. If they have sinned, they will be forgiven”.

The Kiosk still has several calendars for sale, both the St. Tikhon Calendar, which has beautiful prints of icons from Mount Sinai on each page, and the OCA Church of the Saviour in San Francisco, with excerpts from the writings of the ever-memorable Bishop John Shakovskoy on each page.
As our Lord Jesus Christ commanded us in Mathew 25, which was read to us prior to the Lenten season, the Charity Committee would like to undertake two special projects to help the poor and the needy:
1.) Create care packages of personal hygiene items for the homeless, to be collected on Mary of Egypt Sunday (April 2) to be distributed that same week.
