Announcements for December 6-12, 2009

Fourth Sunday of the Nativity Fast
St Nicholas the Wonderworker

O come, thou Key of David, come,
And open wide our heavenly home;
Make safe the way that leads on high,
And close the path to misery.

Rejoice! Rejoice! Emmanuel shall come to thee, O Israel!

St. Nicholas Kontakion, Tone 3 — You proved yourself to be a holy priest, O Nicholas; You served God in Myra and lived the Gospel of Christ. You offered your life for your people; You rescued the innocent from death. Therefore God has glorified you as a trustworthy guide of things divine.
