Winter Festivals

At the Holy Nativity, we burn the palms of last Palm Sunday. At the fire, we sing as the angels to the shepherds who were by the fires tending to their sheep: "Glory to God in the highest and on earth peace and good will toward men!"
In honor of Christ's baptism in Jordan with the apearance of the Holy Trinity, we bless water in honor of that Theophany and are rejuvenated by those waters in refreshment of our own baptisms.

May the Lord who has appeared bless and keep you+
Please pray for our mission efforts.
Your support is appreciated.
