Holy Week & Pascha

St. Francis of the Woods is a contemplative spiritual community with roots in Eastern Orthodox Christianity. We follow the Paschal cycle of the Eastern Church. During the season of Great Lent, from Sunday, March 5th, until Palm Sunday, April 9th, we will have inquirers class during potluck after Sunday services.  This is an opportunity to deepen your faith journey and learn more about the Ecumenical Orthodox way of St. Francis of the Woods and this history and tradition of the Eastern Orthodox Church. Our services are always open to the public and all are welcome.
