Dear Faithful of Sts. Constantine and Helen,

Advent begins tomorrow!

Each Wednesday evening during Advent (with the exception of next Wednesday, Nov. 22, the day before Thanksgiving), we will pray the Advent Paraklesis service at 6pm.

Next Tuesday morning, November 21, we will celebrate the feast of the Entrance of the Theotokos into the Temple with Matins at 9am and Divine Liturgy at 10am.

We will celebrate the feast of St. Nicholas on Wednesday, Dec. 6 with Matins at 9am and Divine Liturgy at 10am.

THE NATIVITY FAST begins tomorrow Wednesday, November 15th and continues through Sunday, December 24th. This Fast is divided into two periods: The first is November 15th through December 19th when the traditional fasting discipline (no meat, poultry, eggs, dairy, fish, wine, and olive oil) is observed on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays, with katalysis for wine and olive oil (some also permit fish) on Tuesdays and Thursdays, and for fish, wine, and olive oil on Saturdays and Sundays. The second is the period of the Forefeast, December 20th through 24th, when the traditional fasting discipline is observed Monday through Friday, with katalysis for wine and olive oil on Saturday and Sunday. 

In Christ,

Fr. David Lewis+
