Saturday, Nov. 2, There will be an International Soup Luncheon and Open House, from 11:30 a.m.-

At 1 p.m. Fr. Nathan will lecture on iconography, an ancient art form used in Eastern Orthodox Christian worship. Our bookshop, Narthex Books and Icons, has lots of icons for sale for your home and they make really nice gifts, too.

Home-baked goodies will be for sale. We will have some special desserts, including some Greek cookies from our festival pastry booth.
