Just a bit of advance notice-- although it wasn't officially announced, some of you may have heard that this was to be a vesperal liturgy on the eve of the Feast. However, it's also the eve of Dave & Laurenn's wedding (see post below!) and it turns out all our choir directors are singing at the wedding and will therefore have to be at the wedding rehearsal on the eve.
Therefore the new schedule for Feast of the Meeting will be :
Saturday February 2nd 9 AM-- Divine Liturgy
no matins before. Father & probably many other people will shortly thereafter have to head for the wedding venue, so I think perhaps there will not be much of an official meal-- we will have to sort it out on that day.
