Memorial Service

Sunday, November20, was Mirušo Piemiņas Dienu.   During the service we honored the memory of eleven sisters and brothers in Christ who went to the Lord in 2022. Ruta Ore lit a candle as each name was read by Pastor Gija Galiņa. Their flames burned brightly in a circle by the altar, reminding us that love never ends.  Additional candles were on a table in front of the altar.  Members of the congregation were invited to come forward and light a candle in memory of loved ones who passed away in previous years.
