Welcome to the Orthodox Church of St. Stephen the Protomartyr!
This Sunday, March 25th is the Sunday of St. Mary of Egypt. St. Mary was harlot and infamous sinner who became a saint of great holiness through fasting, prayer and sincere repentance. This Sunday is a reminder that while Lent is almost at an end it is not too late to repent and turn to Christ.
There is only one Pre-Sactified Liturgy left this year ( April 1st at 6pm) and on Friday (April 3rd) we will be meeting at 6pm at St. Andrew in Eustis for the Stations of the Cross. Because Pascha (Easter) falls and different dates than the Western Easter please be aware of the dates. We are celebrating Holy Week from April 5th to 11th and Pascha is celebrated the early hours of April 12th.
- On Saturday (March 28th) the we are cleaning the Church to get ready for Pascha. Also that morning the Middle School youth will be heading out to St. Augustine to visit the St. Photios Shrine and OCMC (Meeting at the church at 8:30am). Then this Sunday Rachelle Hood of the Ephraim Project is returning to St. Stephen to give instruction on personal evangelism.
