Urgent update about Covid-19
(March 26, 2020)
From Fr. Cassian:
Due to shelter in place orders, and public safety concerns, and in an effort to follow both the letter and spirit of Archbishop Peter's recent instructions for serving the Divine Liturgy in a manner that takes public safety concerns seriously (given the small size of our parish temple), we will no longer be serving public liturgies at the Life-Giving Spring. Services will be conducted by myself, the Reader James Cavin, and Matushka Olympia until the restrictions are lifted. Parishioners should contact me individually to discuss when and how they may recieve the Holy Mysteries and make confession.Read More ...
Luther Unit Liturgy and other news
(May 20, 2016)
As many of you know, on the third Saturday of every month, we go to the Luther Unit near Navasota to perform a liturgy and minister to the inmates there. This Saturday is no exception, and because of that, and because the Kursk-Root icon will be at St. Jonah Russian Orthodox Church in Spring, there will be no Vespers on Saturday evening. Those of you who did not get to see the icon or wish to make another visit, please plan to do so.
Kursk-Root Icon visit
(May 3, 2016)
With the blessing of His Eminence, Metropolitan Hilaron, the Kursk-Root Wonder-working icon of the Mother of God of the Sign (Znamenie) is visiting the Diocese of Chicago and Mid-America. The icon will visit our parish on Wednesday, May 18th.
A molieben (a small, petitionary prayer service) will be served at 7pm, followed by small compline with an akathist to the Mother of God at 8pm. Let us prepare ourselves for this visitation of the Mother of God in her icon, that we may be able to receive the grace she mercifully brings wherever she goes.
