Please note:

Confessions will be heard only through this coming Friday.  If you haven’t made your Lenten confession yet, please do so soon.

Also:

Saturday, March 27 is the semi-annual parish wide clean-up following Liturgy. If you are planning on attending please bring old t-shirts, rags and newspapers for the brass cleaning.  The brass cleaning area may be set outside depending on the weather. If you have not participated in the cleaning before, it is a great way to meet others in the parish and to spend time with friends.  Also, feel welcome to bring snacks.  In the past people have brought bagels, jelly, fruit, vegetables, crackers and juice.

And finally:

For the Paschal Banquet, we are asking that you not bring hard liquor or distilled alcohol beverages to be consumed at church.  Wine, beer, kvass, hard cider, etc., are fine — if consumed responsibly and in moderation.  Please leave vodka, slivovich, arak, rakia, tuica, ouzo, scotch, gin, etc., at home (or at least un-opened if you include it in your Paschal Basket.)  Thanks.
