"Oh Heavenly King, the Comforter, the Spirit of Truth, come and abide in us! Cleanse us of all impurity, and save our souls oh Good One!"
We had a busy but blessed Pentecost weekend at St Tikhon! We started the weekend with our first St Tikhon Yard Sale on Saturday. We gathered items from the far ends of our parish members to sell to anyone who came by. We were able to meet with a lot of our neighbors as well as meet people we might not have had the opportunity to meet otherwise. With free cookies and coffee, it was a great opportunity to practice hospitality.
After the Yard Sale was over, we gathered together for a St Tikhon cookout, where we cooked up hot dogs and hamburgers in reward for a hard working morning.
We ended our day with Great Vespers for Holy Pentecost.
On Pentecost Sunday, we celebrated the feast with the Divine Liturgy followed by Great Vespers with the Kneeling Prayers of Pentecost.
