Illuminate Pascha

We will once again be selling luminaries, which we will light around the church on Holy Saturday night.  The candles are to burn for 4-5 hours.

You can buy a luminary "For the health of" or "For the memory of" your loved ones.

Luminaries are $5 each or 6 for $25. If an indoor procession is required due to weather, we will make arrangements to light these luminaries on another occasion in the coming weeks. To purchase your luminaries please see Emily Stine on a Sunday on or before April 9th.
