Orthodoxy Sunday, the first Sunday of Lent, will fall on Sunday, March 8th. As always, the community of St. Sophia will host the first Vespers and coffee hour that evening. Please contact Elaine Kazakis or Debbie Politis if you would like to show the philoxenia of St. Sophia’s by preparing a Lenten dish to welcome and share with our guests from neighboring Orthodox churches. If you’re unable to contribute a Lenten dish, no worries, just attend to show a warm, St. Sophia’s welcome to our guests from area Orthodox churches.
