This first week of Lent in the Eastern Orthodox tradition, which most of our employees observe, is called Clean Week, and it is a time full of church services. Our operating hours will be somewhat reduced and irregular this week, as well as throughout Lent, so we do ask for your patience.
If you need to have an icon or gift by a specific date, whether for a special Lenten observance, or especially for baptisms that come on Lazarus Saturday and Holy Saturday, we request that you place your orders well in advance to ensure you receive your items on time.
Whether your observance of Lent begins today or on Wednesday, we pray that this spiritual arena is a blessed time for you, and that God will bless your ascetic efforts of prayer, fasting, and almsgiving.
