Vespers of Forgiveness—Sunday, March 3rd

 Eastern Catholics enter into the Great Fast (Lent) next week, on Monday, March 4th. Liturgically, we will observe the beginning of the Great Fast on Sunday with the celebration of Vespers of Forgiveness. In this spirit, one of the most beautiful customs expressed during this season is the exchange of the liturgical “kiss of peace” - a shoulder to shoulder embrace with the sharing of the words, “Christ is with us”. May see the image of Christ within ourselves and in each other! Schedule for Sunday, March 4th  9:00 AM—Divine Liturgy, followed by abbreviated ECF classes and Coffee Social 11:30 AM— POTLUCK SOCIAL (see sign-up sheet in Church Hall) 12:30 PM (approx.)—Vespers of Forgiveness for beginning of Lent
