Dear Church School parents and students,
This year, we will revive Godparents Day here at St. Nicholas!
Saturday, April 4th, the Saturday of Lazaros, will be our Godparent Saturday.
It will be a blessing if the godparents of our children are invited to the Divine Liturgy that day (Orthros at 9am and Divine Liturgy at 10am) so they may worship with our children and take them forward to receive Holy Communion. As usual, we will have the Saturday of Lazaros brunch following the Divine Liturgy and all are invited. As well, we will be making the palm crosses for the next day, Palm Sunday, during and after the brunch.
Please remember that the Saturday of Lazaros is one of the most important days in our liturgical year.
The Gospel lesson (from St. John) foretells the passion and resurrection of Christ that will occur the following week:
So I hope and pray that this important feast day celebration is met with great enthusiasm and piety this year.
