On other weeks, we would like to provide snacks and coffee, and we are asking one person or family to sign up each week to bring the snacks. Please keep it simple, and don't make this a competitive thing.

Anyone (1 person only) may SIGN UP to bring snacks for a particular Sunday here.

             We will also have a donation box available at the meal if you wish to donate toward the cost of snacks or supplies.

Seasonal signup – for Holy Week and Pascha.

We have needs, like red eggs, plastic eggs, Artos, rose petals, etc. If you want to contribute in some way, use the sisterhood sign-up. (see above for the full link) If you are not a “sister”, you can still help, you just need to get the password from father Seraphim or father Nicholas or a member of the sisterhood

Confession times and signup.

We are growing a bit now, and growth always presents blessings and challenges. One challenge is confession availability. Fr Nicholas Fr Seraphim make themselves available for confession by sign-up on Saturday afternoons, and Sunday mornings. We are using an online sign-up because that gives us a better chance of serving everyone. We have sign-ups in 10 or 15  minute increments. This is not to artificially limit anyone, but just to try to accommodate as many people as possible. Father Seraphim especially struggles with not getting behind, but with God all things are possible. It is always possible to treat confession as a kind of “space available” (like waiting for a plane flight) thing, and come and wait and see if there is extra time. There usually is. You can always try to stay out of trouble by praying while waiting!

It is always a possibility to have an appointed time, and you should talk to one of us if that’s what you desire and if we can we will accommodate you. We both much prefer confessing people on Saturday rather than Sunday morning so keep that in mind. The normal schedule for confession is as follows:

Saturday 2-5 pm – Fr Seraphim ; 4-5 pm Fr Nicholas:

Signup here:

We ask that you be patient! Somebody’s got to sign-up for the earlier times. Remember that if you’re trying to just come just before Vespers that’s not what Fr. Seraphim or Fr. Nicholas did. We are all in this together. As an offering to your brothers and sisters if you can come earlier, please do.
