Dear Parents:

During the month of November, there are two very important items that greatly impact our spiritual life. These are the holiday of Thanksgiving and the beginning of the Nativity fast. We have scheduled therefore our next parent education discussion on these two items to give us a chance to look into their significance to us as Orthodox Christians. Please mark your calendars to remember to attend this discussion which will take place next Monday, November 21 at 7:00pm in the large school hall.

Our first two discussion were well attended for the most part and seem to have been well received. I fully expect this coming discussion to be both very interesting and beneficial. The speaker will be Hieromonk James, who oversees the community that attends the services at the old cathedral.

I look forward to see you at this discussion and learn together with you more about the virtue of giving thanks to God as well as the reason for and the importance of the Nativity fast.

With Love in Christ,
Archpriest Serge Kotar, Chaplain
