Our Lenten Discipline —

• There are many extra divine services each week until Pascha.

• There are many evenings where Confession is scheduled.  Confession can also be by appointment.

• Our Lenten almsgiving will focus on Gulf Coast II — helping to send a Portland team to assist the IOCC in New Orleans.

• Monthly participation at the St. Francis Dining Hall (3rd Sunday).

• Mark your calendars for the parish-wide Work Party on Lazarus, Saturday, March 27, following Divine Liturgy.

Plan to take advantage of these as part of your Lenten discipline and spirituality.

Pysanki —

Here’s your invitation to “write” those colourfully decorated Ukrainian Easter Eggs – common to most all Slavic Peoples.  See fliers in the Hall for details.
