Anastasios,

Is that a yes? If so I'll send you directions.  And bring Tony S. with you.

In Christ,
Subdeacon Lance

Lance,

I'm afraid with my work load I can't leave SC any this month, but I will certainly rejoice as you (and your family) are blessed with the sacrament of ordination.  May it be to your salvation and the salvation of all those who surround you.

Lance,

I'm gonna have to say no because I didn't realize how far into PA Canonsburg is! :-(  I am already going to drive to NC in November and then Ohio and North Carolina in December so I have been doing too much travelling.
