"Bring The Little Children Unto Me"

Bring The Little Children Unto Me.

St. Mary Antiocian Orthodox Church uses St. Luke facilities each Sunday for Divine Liturgy at 1 PM. Since the children attend Church School and there is not enough room for them at the Liturgy, Fr. Andrew celebrates a Typica Service for the children in the Fellowship Hall. They all sing the responses and receive Holy Communion which is reserved from the earlier Liturgy.
