Forgiveness (Cheese-Fare) Sunday — Luncheon and Vespers Following Liturgy

Following Liturgy on Sunday, February 26, our teens will be serving lunch — eggs, shunkleash, home fries and Syrian bread — for $4 per person.  This Sunday is the last day to eat dairy in the Orthodox tradition in which  a vegan fast is followed during Great Lent.  This Sunday is also known as “Forgiveness Sunday” — fasting and forgiveness are two conditions highlighted in Sunday’s Gospel reading (Matthew 6:14 – 21) which leads us immediately ino the lenten season.  A beautiful vespers service will follow the luncheon, at 1:30 pm, and end with our parishioners asking forgiveness of each other in a spirit of love and unity.
