Vespers and Dinner with Visiting Monks from St. Dionysios Monastery
Please make plans to attend a special Vespers service and dinner at St. Nicholas with three monks who are visiting Waco from Long Island, New York. The service will be on Friday, November 15th at 6pm and will be followed by a potluck dinner as well as a Q&A conversation with the monks. Please bring a "fast-friendly" dish to share as well as any questions you might like to ask the monks, who are knowledgeable on a wide range of topics related to our Faith. Suggested foods to bring: soups, stews, or chilis; bread or crackers; fruit; nuts; vegetables/salads. Contact Susan Colón if you have questions related to the event. 254-424-7801.
Book Store & Library
Please take a moment to visit our book room and see the new books available. We also have Christmas ornaments available.
We will have our monthly potluck the first Sunday of each month following Divine Liturgy. Don't feel like cooking? Store-bought is great, too, just please bring a dish to share with the Parish.

Sacrament of Holy Communion (Non-Orthodox Visitors)
It is with the deepest regret that we ask you to abstain from receiving Holy Communion. This is a sacrament reserved only for those who are baptized, chrismated and prepared Orthodox Christians. It pains us to turn away a Christian who loves and worships the Lord Jesus, but because of the separation of the Christian churches and the different understanding we have about the Sacrament of Holy Communion, we ask you to abstain. Do come and receive the blessed bread at the conclusion of the service.
We are happy to have you worshiping with us today. Please stay with us after the Divine Liturgy so that we may meet you.
