Annual St. Vasilios Lenten Speakers Series

The St. Vasilios Lenten Speaker Series is a chance for our community to come together during Great Lent to celebrate the Presanctified Liturgy, enjoy fellowship during a light lenten supper, and grow together while learning from our guest speakers. 

We are blessed to have three outstanding speakers for this year so please make every effort to support this ministry and the speakers (they are inspired when they see the chairs occupied!)

The evening begins with Presanctified Liturgy at 6:00 PM. The evening will end around 8.30 pm.
