Hello, All.  well, I will be driving very soon, and this summer I'm going to get a job at the local taco bell and start a "gas fund" in a jar under my bed (shh!  don't tell my sister!).  I realize that I will need to ask for specific days off up front to attend Church services, as fast food places are notoriously bad at giving you spurr of the moment days off.  I am going to ask for every Sunday and two Saturdays a month off. 

since I'm still new to Orthodoxy, what are some holidays that I am rather obligated to take off from work to go to Church?  Pascha, obviously.  any others?

thanks!

Any Chick-fil-A's nearby? All of them are closed on Sundays, so you would only have to ask for Saturday off (and other specific holidays).

i know this thread is old now, but if the Chik-fil-a option is available, please try and do that!! Not only will you be able to attend liturgy, but it is a much better environment to work in!
