Fr. Yossi led a beautiful Palm Sunday Holy Communion service this past Sunday. The service started with him blessing the palms and then leading the congregation as we processed around the church. The procession was followed by the Holy Communion Service. Fr. Yossi's sermon contemplated what does it feel like to know you have one week left to live. Jesus knew that on the original Palm Sunday. He knew the Jewish authorities would now consider Him dangerous. He knew the disciples who marched proudly beside Him on Palm Sunday would abandon Him. Please find the complete service including the sermon at the following link:

Thank you Fr. Yossi for the beautiful service! Thank you Br. Scott for serving with Fr. Yossi.


After services we enjoyed a wonderful lunch provided by Teresa, Diane, Lin, and Fr. Yossi. They served two types of lasagna, Caesar's salad, homemade sour dough bread, fruit salad, chocolate pecan pie, rum cake, and chocolate cake!

What a feast!

Also, Rose Marie and Teresa made sure we had plenty of Hot Cross Buns!

Delicious Food! Wonderful Company! Blessed Day!


The Church looked beautiful for Palm Sunday!

Thank you Teresa for ordering all the palms and palm fans!

Thank you Rosalind, Diane, Fr. Paul....

Lin, Sue, And Teresa for making all the palm crosses and palm roses!

Even Miss Vicky had fun!

Fr. Yossi has asked us to bring our Bibles for these studies. Please join us on April 7 at 10 am - a pot of coffee will be on!


Our Bible Study will continue this Wednesday, March 27 @ 11 am at the church. Fr. Paul is leading a series of lessons which are focused on his book As It Is In Heaven A Biblical, Historical, and Theological Introduction to the Traditional Church and Her Worship. The topic for the next lecture is "From the Kingdom of Heaven to the Kingdom on Earth".


Sue continues to lead our weekly online prayer group on Discord every Thursday at 2 pm. Thank you so much Sue for taking the time each week to lead our prayers! If you have a special prayer request but cannot join us, please send your request to Sue. Please contact me if you would like to join us on Discord.


Please keep Rose Marie in your prayers as she lost her precious Molly this past week.
