Announcement: Analogion
Jul 1 – Jul 31 all day

Our parish has purchased an original analogion (lectern), custom-built in Ukraine by artisans to match the design of our iconostasis and general aesthetic of our church. The artisans that built the piece have also designed, in a matching style, an altar, tetrapod (table at the front of the church), and two side tables for the corners of the tabernacle area. These pieces will be available for purchase in the future. Please feel free to send any comments or questions about the analogion to Parish Councillor, Landon Coleman, who will present all feedback to parish council. A phone number is located on the back of the weekly bulletin.

Soup Kitchen Volunteering – Shepherds of Good Hope
Aug 17 @ 8:30 am – 12:45 pm

Every third Saturday of the month, our parishioners have an opportunity to help the most vulnerable in our city by volunteering with Shepherds of Good Hope, a soup kitchen homeless shelter located in downtown Ottawa.  We start at 8:30 a.m., first helping to prepare food for the week by peeling potatoes, chopping veggies, making sandwiches, etc.  Before lunchtime we break for a prayer, then stay on to help serve lunch, and wash dishes, ending around 1:00 p.m.

Your help is much appreciated.  If are interested in joining us, please contact Larisa at volunteer-sogh@stjbshrine.ca
