May 3rd & 17th there are scheduling conflicts, so we will not be meeting on those days.

Thursday, the 21st of May is the Feast of the Ascension. Friday, the 29th of May is our patronal feast - the Feast of Saint Brendan the Navigator. It is unknown if we could have access at these times, but we will keep you updated. We are hoping to arrange at least for access to do Vespers & Compline on those days.

Father Mark will be coming up soon for Divine Liturgy - most probably on a Saturday, and we will send out a separate posting when we have those details nailed down. We have a tentative date of 9 May at this time.

in Christ,
