The Great Fast of Lent continues: we abstain from meat, dairy, eggs, and fish. Wine & oil are permitted on Saturdays & Sundays (and certain other days; check your church calendar).

Please look for pussy willows when they bloom and bring them to church; we shall need them for the Vigil of Palm Sunday, which is next Saturday, Mar. 31.

We shall need volunteers for various activities on Good Friday, Holy Saturday, Pascha, and Bright Monday (Apr. 6–9), including the Plaschanitsa Watch and numerous processions. If you would help, please contact our Starosta, Dexter Peavy.

Many years to those named for St. Mary of Egypt, commemorated on Fifth Sunday of Lent! (She is also commemorated on Apr. 1/14.)
