Greetings, beloved parishioners and faithful of the Annunciation Cathedral.
I pray this finds you to be well and in the best of health during this Lenten season.
The second Sunday of the Great and Holy Fast is dedicated to Saint Gregory Palamas, Archbishop of Thessaloniki, the Wonderworker. We are blessed to have a relic of Saint Gregory that will be offered to you to venerate. To learn more about the saint, follow this link - https://www.goarch.org/sunday-stgregorypalamas.
We are extremely grateful to EVERYONE that have been following the guidelines during the pandemic. Baltimore City is allowing capacity at 50% in all places of worship. That will allow us to double the size that have been attending already. Not at any time have we not been using the Cathedral or the two chapels for prayer and the Liturgical life of this parish has not stopped. For all who attended have commented on how well the Cathedral has responded very carefully in spacing out pews and all precautions that have been taken.
You are encouraged and welcome to register for services this Sunday, March 28, 2021 by following this link - https://forms.gle/h7QLYP8uxvL4TUxn6. This is collected only, in accordance with the guidelines, for contact tracing. Orthros begins at 7:30 AM, the Divine Liturgy of Saint Basil the Great at 9:00 AM.
Services for this evening, the Compline and the second stanza of the Akathyst will be prayed beginning at 6:00 pm in the Cathedral. Again, you will need to register by following this link - https://forms.gle/7cnNnnzdZaoHUBEu5.
Next Sunday, April 4, 2021 is the Sunday of the Veneration of the Holy Cross. A portion of the Holy Cross will be present during the Divine Liturgy for you to venerate. This was gifted to Father Dean from His Beatitude Patriarch Theophilos of Jerusalem.
A copy of the Sunday Bulletin is enclosed, along with information for the upcoming Lenten Retreat, Easter Lilly Donations, and the upcoming "hybrid" festival.
