Regional Lenten service on March 30 at Beaver Springs Fire Department

— BEAVER SPRINGS — The Orthodox Christian Chapel of the Holy Spirit in Beavertown will hold a special Lenten Vespers service at 4 p.m. Sunday, March 30, at the social hall of Beaver Springs Fire Company, 1015 Center Ave., in Beaver Springs.

A fellowship meal will follow at the fire company social hall.

All are welcome to attend what will be a good introduction for those interested in the ancient style of Christian worship found in Orthodox Christianity, with roots in the Eastern Mediterranean and the first millennia of the Christian church.

The service, approximately an hour long, will be chanted in English by clergy, choir members, and faithful from around the Altoona-Johnstown Deanery (or district) of the Archdiocese of Pittsburgh and Western Pennsylvania.

For more information, contact Deacon David Smith of Beavertown at (570) 541-8895, or Father Basil Biberdorf of Boalsburg at
