Church Book Store

Bright Monday
Traditionally, after Liturgy, children carry the icons in the procession around the church. Fr. Victor reminds parents that instead of sending your children to school on Monday, it would be better to bring them to church for the Divine Liturgy. If anyone needs a note from the priest confirming that this is a religious holiday, Fr. Victor will provide one.
