The feast of the Holy Apostles Peter and Paul is one of the great feasts of our Church, and the patronal feast of our parish. Normally we celebrate this feast with great solemnity on the day of June 29th. However, this great feast has been selected as the date for the enthronement of Bishop BENEDICT. As the priests of the eparchy are expected to be at the enthronement in Chicago, Fr. David will not be here on the 29th, and thus our parish schedule will not be the same as it usually is.
There will be no services at our parish on the day of Thursday, June 29th. Rather, the festal services will be held on Wednesday evening. The services for the feast will be at on June 28th. Starting at 5:00 PM there will be Great Vespers, Divine Liturgy, Litya, and the festal procession. Following these services Fr. David will fly to Chicago for the enthronement of Bishop BENEDICT and the clergy conference.
