New Sticharions for Our Acolytes - 11/14/17

Dear Parishioners,

As you may have noticed, the number of acolytes has increased and our vestry does not have enough sticharions in gold for our daily use. That is why the servers are wearing a variety of colors: gold, red, and even blue. It would be proper if every server’s vestment color matched the season and furnishings in our church.

The Merciful Lord has opened an opportunity for us to improve this situation. We have found 14 new gold sticharions for $2120.00; approximately $150/unit.
