Christmas Carols at St. Paul Skete

Mother Nektaria invites everyone to St. Paul Skete in Grand Junction to celebrate the Second Day of Christmas, the Synaxis of the Theotokos, on Friday, December 26th. Fr. John, from St. John, will serve Divine Liturgy at 10:00 a.m., followed by a potluck meal – bring some Christmas “overabundance” (foods that don’t need heating) – and the singing of Christmas carols. Please try to let Mother Nektaria know by Monday, December 22nd, if you plan to come so she can better prepare for the day.
