Mini Retreat (no flier, short notice) Holy Myrrhbearers in Bonners Ferry, Idaho. It is not too late to make a nice weekend trip.
Christ is Risen! I am following up on the mini-retreat at Holy
Myrrhbearers Orthodox Church in Bonners Ferry this Saturday, April
25th. The schedule is roughly this:
Hours with Divine Liturgy for the Feast of St. Mark the Evangelist
will begin at 9:00am, followed by an informal breakfast in the parish
The first session should begin between 10:30am and 11am in the church,
with childcare being offered in the parish hall.
Lunch (potluck) is scheduled between 12:30 and 1pm and the second
session should begin between 1:30pm and 2pm (again, with childcare
being offered). Following that session, which might be extended a bit
for questions, everyone is invited to Great Vespers with the Blessing
of the Loaves for the Feast of the Holy Myrrhbearers (our parish feast
day). I anticipate that this service will begin no later than 4pm and
possibly around 3:30pm. It will include procession and Litya outside.
Confessions can be heard following that service.
I pray that everyone can make it for this “Mini-Retreat” on the topic
of Laying Aside All Earthly Cares. Feel free to come to any portion or
all of Saturday’s events.
In The Risen Christ,
