Memorial Saturdays / All Souls Saturdays: Due to the snowstorm last weekend we will observe the first of the 5 Memorial Saturdays this Saturday (Cheesefare Saturday) at 10:00 am. Please note on the “All Souls” envelopes any additions or corrections to your list of departed family members.

Cheesefare Sunday:

  • Next Sunday (February 7th) is Cheesefare/Forgiveness Sunday. As in the past, we will gather for lunch following the Divine Liturgy and then celebrate Vespers which liturgically ushers in the Great Fast.
  • This year lunch will provided by the family of +Margaret Furda as a ‘Mercy Meal’ in memory of her recent passing. At the time of her death +Margaret was St Gregory’s oldest parishioner.
  • Next Sunday plan on staying for Vespers following lunch as a way to make a good start of the Great Fast so that it may be a time of grace and growth.

Baptized Into Christ: Today we will welcome into Christ’s Holy Church Agnes Gertrude Marie, daughter of Blaise and Térèse, who will be reborn in the waters of Baptism, sealed with the gift of the Holy Spirit in Chrismation, and nourished with the sacred Body and Blood of Christ in the Eucharist. To His newly-enlightened servant, Agnes, and to her family – many years!

Let us remember in prayer all those who are in some special need of God’s loving kindness and mercy at this time. Let us remember particularly the “Prayer Requests” of all who have asked for the prayerful support of our Parish Family in their special intentions.
