Great Lent is the period where we prepare ourselves for Holy Week and Pascha. Here is our schedule of events leading up to Pascha throughout March and into April:
Our regular meeting place starting Nov 26th will be located at 554 Tunxis Hill Rd, Fairfield, CT 06825 (shared with Trinity-St Michael’s Episcopal Parish) NOTE: If you’re looking up the address on Google or Waze, there are two “554 Tunxis Hill” entries. Make sure you click the one with “Road”, not “Cut Off”.
There is plenty of parking around the back off of Ridgely Ave.
We begin celebrating our bilingual Divine Liturgy at 10:30am. Each service will be followed by our coffee hour and everyone is invited. We look forward to serving our community and hope you will all spread the word to the Romanian community and as well as invite others who are searching for a church home to be a part of.
A very big thank you to Marietta Diaconescu for the beautiful altar table cloth she made for the altar at our new location which we all admired last week and for weeks to come.
We were blessed to have Fr. Cornell share some words on such a special day.
Fr. Vincentiu shares some words to a full house inside our beautiful, historic sanctuary.
Named after St Dumitru Basarobov the patron Saint of Bucharest. Saturday, November 4th was a beautiful fall day with around 150 people and 10 priests in attendance including His Eminence Metropolitan Nicolae who honored us with his presence. The Metropolitan reminded us of the life and death of saint we were celebrating as well as the importance of the church in the lives of our children, grandchildren, godchildren, nieces & nephews, who follow by example.
We had a great turnout for the event and we would like to thank all of those who made the trip to Middletown.
You came, you ate, you donated and you danced, and you danced, and you danced some more! We renewed old friendships and made new ones… and we all just had a great time! That it was a HUGE SUCCESS cannot be denied but could not have been realized without you, your friends and families!
We started the day with a lovely outdoor Holy Liturgy celebration beautifully served by Fr. Vincentiu and a full choir in the morning followed by the event itself. We were blessed with great weather and the presence of Fr. Cornel, Fr Peter and Fr Patrick.
We are TRULY HUMBLED by your devotion and support the St. Brancoveni Romanian Orthodox Church!
In case you forgot what it looked like…
St. Brancoveni ROC “We Are Family – Suntem o Familie” t-shirts will be available for pre-order over the next few weeks to celebrate our church’s journey thus far. A signup sheet will be available at the candle table and we will look to submit our first order in the next month or so.
