Divine Liturgy followed by Potluck Lenten Dinner.

2nd Meeting of the Lenten Book Study Group, March 23rd @ 11 AM @ Holy Cross, followed by a Pot Luck luncheon. Our 2nd meeting of the Lenten Book Study group featuring Bread & Water, Wine & Oil: An Orthodox Christian Experience of God by Father Meletios Webber, will be on Thursday, March 23rd @ 11 AM @ Holy Cross. The Study Group will be alternating every Thursday between Holy Trinity and Holy Cross (135 Stokes Ave., Stroudsburg, PA) with the last group meeting on Thursday, April 6th @ Holy Cross.

Worry, despair, insecurity, fear of death . . . these are our daily companions, and even though we attempt to ignore them or try to crowd them out, they are there, waiting for us in our quieter moments. It is precisely where we hurt most that the experience of the Orthodox Church has much to offer.

Please join us!
