Greetings in Christ! Tomorrow is the “Forgiveness Sunday”, the final Liturgy of the season before Great Lent, which starts at 9:40AM. Tonight, Saturday evening at 6:30PM, will be Vigil with Confessions. We encourage everyone to prepare for the Lenten season by partaking in the Mystery of Confession so that we can take Holy Communion together tomorrow at the Liturgy for Forgiveness Sunday. Our schedule for Great Lent is also on our new website where you will find our listings for important Lenten services like the Canon of St. Andrew and the evening Vesperal Liturgies of the Pre-Sanctified Gifts.

Do you have cabin fever yet? We’re taking a trip to TubeWorld in Maggie Valley February 10th for the 12:00 session. This event is open to all St. Nicholas parishioners and anybody else who might be interested in a really good time. Some of us went there today the snow is high and the tubes were fast. You can find more information about Tube World here. Contact John Cummings, Reader Abraham or Reader Aidan for details. We’re working on transportation and there is some money available to help you if you are in need. Otherwise, it’s $25.00 per person.
The full Nativity schedule is now available, and starting in 2018 we will have Compline in Waynesville Tuesday night. We are also asking for new volunteers to join one of our trapeza teams. Please see the rest of this post for updates on the bookstore, our new website, and the church construction project.
