The Joy of the Feast Be with You!

It’s our summer patronal feast day! To celebrate, we will serve an Akathist to St. John of Shanghai in place of Little Compline tonight (Thursday, July 2nd), and, following the custom of the church in which he was glorified (ROCOR), we will celebrate his feast-day with a Divine Liturgy (at 9am) on the Saturday closest to the date of his repose (July 4th). Suggested topic for discussion after the service tonight: the life and significance of St. John of Shanghai. provides some links to relevant resources:
