Our Wednesday morning discussion will be meeting February 13 at 11am to discuss the Didache. Please join us in discussing this 2nd Century Christian document where we get insight into what the earliest Christians thought was most important for Christians to know and do. David Short has printed a few copies of the Didache for those wishing to join the discussion - please see him for a copy and bring it to the class on Wednesday. We will be discussing the Didache for a couple of weeks and then will begin discussing Metropolitan Kallistos Ware's book How Are We Saved? Fr. Ted has ordered a few copies of the book - the cost will be about $20. See him if you want to get a copy, or order your copy online.

You can bring to the Liturgy a written list of the names of your deceased family and friends whom you want prayed for, and we will pray by name for them during the Liturgy. Fr. Ted will also be available to hear confessions immediately following the Divine Liturgy on that Saturday morning from about 11 AM to Noon.
