A healing service with the anointing will be offered in occasion of the Feast of the holy unmercenary Wonder-Workers Cosmas and Damian. This service will take place on Saturday November 6th at 10am. The service is meant to offer a prayerful occasion when we can ask the Lord in the church for the healing of our bodies and souls and receive the blessing with the holy oil. All are welcome to attend.
