|Vic's going away party|
Victoria is going to Quebec for 5 weeks for school (she is studying to become a french teacher) so we had a going away party for her at Milestones in Langley last night. There were 22 girls there - it was a great time!

Thanks and God Bless...

We were blessed to have Fr. Lawrence here with us at St. Herman's in Edmonton for our beloved Archbishop SERAPHIM's 20th Anniversary celebration of his Consecration to the Episcopate.
On Saturday morning, a Hierarchical Divine Liturgy was served by Vladika SERAPHIM, His Grace Bishop BENJAMIN of San Francisco, and His Grace Bishop IOV of the Moscow Patriarchal Parishes in Canada. The Bishops served together with 16 priests and three deacons!
The whole weekend was a joyous reminder of our Archbishop's work for the Lord.

Dave and I are planning to party down with the senior youth in Langley following our Vesperal Liturgy on Thursday June 28th. We'll head out to our party destination after Liturgy is over (approx. 8:30) and parents can pick up their youth at around 10:30 or 11:00.
There is, however, a slight hitch in our cunning plan. Dave and his roommates are moving out of Casa Phil this month, planning to be moved out by the 26th. This puts us in a bit of a tight spot for a party location. So, this is our official plea to all you Langley-dwelling St. Hermanites. If one of our Langley dwellers would be willing to host the youth for a few hours that evening, we would be eternally grateful, and you will be handsomely rewarded. Which is to say, you get a big hug, thank you, and perhaps some kind of chocolate.
Anyone wanting to volunteer their home to us please give me a call during the coming week. I'm best reached on the church phone line, as my cell phone is off while I'm at school.

Men of the East (east of the island),
Behold your demise. Behold, aye, and tremble. These bold hockey
warriors await you on the fields of Panorama. They are fell men,
hardened by weeks of ruthless training. Death is no obstacle, nor
skinned knees, nor winded priests. Nay, but anon you shall see their
mettle, and their valor shall shine forth in a blaze of glory, and you shall be like wet noodles under their chopsticks.
Meet them, if you dare.
