V&E Artwalk

Due to the rainy forecast for Saturday, the V and E Artwalk has been rescheduled for Sunday afternoon from 12 – 6.  With the setup that will be occurring that morning, they have asked that we not park on the green space across the street from the Church and not on the south side of Tutwiler from Dickenson South to Dickenson North, which is not a very big area.  They will have cones out to remind us of this.  Thank you for helping us continue to be good neighbors.  Of course, the Artwalk will be open following the Divine Liturgy and I hope that you are able to participate in some of the festivities.  We will be offering church tours in the afternoon.
