December 2020

For the month of December, in addition to our Sunday 10 a.m. Typica services and second Saturday 10 a.m. Divine Liturgy, we will be offering an Advent Paraclesis Service at 6 p.m. on Thursday 10 December, with Fr. Nikolai available to hear confessions both before and after the service, and the Royal Hours of the Nativity at 9 a.m. Thursday 24 December, Reader's Typica for the Feast of the Nativity at 10 a.m. on Friday 25 December, and a Divine Liturgy for the Synaxis of the Theotokos at 10 a.m. Saturday 26 December. The faithful are asked to their print own service orders (or bring an inobtrusive electronic device on which to view the order of service) to minimize contact, and are reminded that face-masks are required while at the Chapel, except when receiving the Holy Mysteries or partaking of the antidoron at the Liturgy. We also provide service texts for Saturday Vespers so the faithful may serve Vespers at home.
