... power!

After almost two weeks of coordinating faxes and inspections from plumbers and the Department of Public works, we've been granted a certificate of occupancy!

As of Friday afternoon, St. Matthew Orthodox Mission has electricity! Power! DYNAMIS!

Glory to God for all things!

Much of today, Saturday, will be spent doing heavy lifting, arranging tables and chairs, bookshelves, etc. We'll set out the first small installment of our inventory from St Vladimir's Seminary Press. More inventory from Conciliar Press will be arriving in the next week or so.

Around sundown today, we'll plan to say the Trisagion prayers rather than the fuller Vespers Service.

We will gather for Typika tomorrow, Sunday July 2, at 10 AM at 15959 Hewwood Avenue, Suite F, which is located in Wedgewood Village off O'Neal Lane just south of Interstate 12.

Click here for a map. Because we didn't have the certificate until Friday, we weren't able to get an ad in the newspaper. It will be small, but joyous.

Fr Justin Patterson will be visiting next weekend -- July 8-9 -- for full Vespers and Divine Liturgy. Look for the announcement in the Baton Rouge Advocate's Religion section next week.
