The Sunday Divine Service & Lenten Services
Divine Service is the center of our life of faith in Christ. It is
celebrated every Sunday at 9:00 a.m.
The Sacrament of the Altar
is celebrated on odd Sundays of the month and festival days.
Lent will begin this month. Ash Wednesday is February 14th. This
season we will consider the wisdom and help we have in suffering
from "The Book of Job: Blessed Be the Name of the Lord!"
