In celebration of the Feast of St. Nicholas, on the Sunday closest to the feastday, we celebrate St. Nicholas with Father Constantine telling the story and gifts for the children. What a joy it is to see these happy faces!

The Blessing of the Waters - 01/07/18
On a very cold Sunday, January 7, 2018, we celebrated the Feast of the Theophany at St. John the Divine. All activities were held indoors!
On Sunday, January 7, 2018, the first Sunday of 2018, we celebrated the Feast of St. Basil (January 1st) with the blessing and distribution of St. Basil's Bread. We were gifted with 2 loaves -- one citrus, one almond -- so that those with citrus allergies could participate. Our dear friend, Anna, received the coin. May God Grant Her Good Fortune Throughout 2018!
