Glory to Jesus Christ! Glory forever!
On 02 February, the Orthodox Church celebrates the Feast of the Meeting of Our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ in the Temple. One of the twelve Great Feasts on the liturgical calendar, this day commemorates the presentation of Jesus by Mary and Joseph to the Temple on the fortieth day after His birth, being received into the arms of the righteous Simeon. (Gospel of St. Luke 2:22-38)
Please join us on Wednesday, 01 February 2023, at 6pm, as we celebrate the service of Vespers for the Feast.
Also on this day, due to its association with light (cf. Luke 2:32), it is customary to bless candles that will be used for the following year. If you have candles that you would like to be blessed, please bring them with you to church.
