We attended my third and his first Melkite service on Sunday, August 2. We liked it so much we decided to attend for Holy Transfiguration (Thursday, August 6). We got to talking to other young adults at the dinner afterwards.
Well, I asked how to become members of the parish. (Honestly, hubby and I never became members of a parish together, after we were married. We kept our parish as the one where we got married. Although we rarely attended Mass there. I kept wanting to find the “right fit” for us. We just went to different Roman services in the diocese.) We were told to fill out a form, which is available in the narthex. We did. I filled it out right there on the spot and handed it in to the appropriate person!
I also decided to try the Fast for the Holy Dormition. It isn’t too hard at all. I slipped once, had some apple bacon hubby was making for me. (Hubby isn’t doing this fast, which is fine.) We are going to attend Paraklesis, too. Maybe not Monday, b/c hubby might work late. But definitely on Wednesday!
Thank you to all who prayed for me when I requested prayers a few months ago!
