Please join us as Dynamis Byzantine Ensemble presents:
A Journey through Lent to Holy Week
The Orthodox hymns of Lent call the Church to repentance in preparation for the Passion of the Lord which transpires in Holy and Great Week. Dynamis Byzantine Ensemble will perform the hymns of Lent and Holy Week in English and in the traditional Byzantine musical style, bringing out the depth of beauty and poetry found in the texts and moving the Christian to reflect upon the mercy and love Jesus has for the whole world.

As seen on The Columbian:
Fr. Michael Rozdilski of Holy Apostles Orthodox Church will conduct the annual blessing of the Columbia River as part of the Orthodox Church’s celebration of the great Feast of Theophany, also known as Epiphany, which commemorates the Baptism of Jesus Christ in the River Jordan nearly 2000 years ago. All are welcome to join.
Prior to the blessing of the river, Fr. Michael will celebrate the Divine Liturgy at Holy Apostles Orthodox Church located at 3214 N St., Vancouver. The service will begin at 9 a.m. and will conclude just before 11 a.m.
At the conclusion of the church service we will meet on the banks of the Columbia River at Wintler Community Park where Fr. Michael will conduct the blessing of the waters at 11:30 a.m., and a few will dive in to the river to retrieve a wooden cross.
The 2020 Oregon March for Life will be held at the Oregon State Capitol in Salem on Saturday, January 25th at 2:30pm. Every year are fortunate to have a dedicated group of Orthodox Christians who have attended similar events in Portland, Oregon, and this year we hope to have a strong turnout for the March for Life at the State Capitol. We invite all Orthodox Christians and friends in the area to come and pray for all those who have died and all those who are suffering and have suffered under the current laws of our land. Please bring an icon or a sign and help us carry the Orthodox Christians for Life banners and join us in solidarity as we take a stand for the sanctity of life! For more information about this event, please visit the Oregon Right To Life website.
