Just a quick note to let you all know that there will be NO matins tomorrow (September 2nd), as I will be away with my family in Coeurs D'Alene, visiting the in-laws. I will return later on Tuesday morning, without my family, who will spend the remainder of the week away. Matins will happen as usual on Wednesday.
Also, next Sunday (September 7th) we will celebrate a festal Vespers for the Nativity of the Theotokos at 1:00 p.m., after lunch. We will serve a festal divine liturgy for the feast on Monday at 9:00 a.m.
