This Sunday, our deacon Valdis Teraudkalns will be preaching. The topic of the sermon is based on the words of Jesus from Matthew 12:46-50— “who are my mother and my brothers?” In terms of music, our organist Jana Zariņa will be playing together with a special guest guitarist.

29th of May: Night of Churches

St. Saviour’s Night of Churches greeting video (in Latvian)

Thank you to everyone who participated in the special Night of Churches event on the 29th of May! Our music director Jana performed improvisations on piano together with an accompanist, and for the first time we had readings of Plato done in dialogue form by students of philosophy. We were reminded of the influence of Platonism on Christianity. The program ended with Lord’s Prayer which was done at the same time in all churches who participated throughout the country. If you were unable to make it out this year, then we hope to see you for next May’s event!

Soup Kitchen

As with every Saturday, our team of volunteers worked hard to serve and feed some of Riga’s most needy inhabitants. If you have the time and or treasure to help us with this important ministry, please contact our coordinator Pāvels for more information!

Garden Update

Today, Inese planted some more small plants in the boxes throughout our lawn, and she also weeded the flowerbeds. There are now plants in all three boxes. There will soon be some more, and she now hopes to get bigger plants with flowers. All is growing — the rowan tree has new leaves, and our big juniper has small, but nice green branches. The anemones have white flowers. It seems that Lauma’s clovers are sprouting and growing. All is nice, green and sunny now. We hope you have a chance to enjoy our garden soon!
