This weekend at St Mary of Egypt (August 29 & 30)

Saturday August 29  Great Vespers cancelled

Sunday August 30 Matins 8:50am, Divine Liturgy 10am with Fr Gabriel Monforte serving. 

Please let me or Bobbi know if you plan to attend on Sunday. 

As you saw last Sunday, the seating in the Nave has been rearranged so the choir can be on one side together.  We continue to keep our safe distancing (6 ft apart).  Masks are also required except when receiving communion. Bobbi seats people upon arrival.  Overflow seating is in the Fellowship Hall and Narthax as well.  We had 34 people total last Sunday while maintaining the safe distancing and could have seated more. 

Looking ahead in September. 

1. Starting Saturday September 12, Father Athanasius will be  having Great Vespers on Saturdays at 5pm and hearing confession.  You  can also call him to schedule a time for confession if you are not available after Vespers on Saturdays.

2.  Feast of the Nativity of the Theotokos is Tuesday September 8.  Father Athanasius will serve the Liturgy that day at 10am.  Please note the time and for those of you not working please make an effort to come.   

Other News from St Mary of Egypt

Outreach to ISOM Elementary School: Now that school is back in session, Eve will be delivering our canned goods and nonperishables each Tuesday to the school.  The school will distribute the food to needy families. .  You can bring your donated food to church on Sundays and place them in the basket in the Narthex. If you are bringing a large quantity of food you can also place it in the Bible Study classroom.  That is where the food to be blessed is kept.   Please check that the items you bring are not expired and that the cans are not dented. Thank you
