We joyously hosted and celebrated the inaugural Sunday School Convocation, commemorating the outstanding achievements of our graduates.
The first period of our liturgical year begins at the end of October or at the beginning of November, on the Sunday between October 30th and November 5th. It is the beginning of the Orthodox Church calendar. This Sunday is called Koodhosh-Eetho Sunday. It means to “sanctify or purify the church.
We invite you to join our church in prayerfully and devotedly honouring Holy Week as we get closer to the holiest season of the year.
