BYZANTINE CHANT IS BACK!!!!
We will be resuming Beginner Chanting lessons Monday, September 14th, from 7:15-8:15pm in the St. Theodore the Commander Chapel. I highly encourage you all to participate and learn the hymnology of our Church! This is for all ages, genders (really just the two) and experience/skill! If you have any questions or comments here please do not hesitate to contact me about it! I know many of you have been getting some exposure to chant, especially the girls with Presbytera, and this would be a great way to continue those lessons. Contact Thomas Manuel if you are interested at Thomas@annunciationva.org.
Bible Study: The Book of Genesis
“In the Beginning……” How did God create the universe and how do we understand it? What is unique about humanity and makes us different from the rest of creation? Come and answer these questions and more as we study the Book of Genesis every Tuesday night at 6:30 PM in the Meeting Room with Father George. Do not forget to bring your Bible and your curiosity!
