Confirmation of the New Zoning By-Law

28 Oct

““Let us build these cities and make walls around them, and towers, gates, and bars, while the land is yet before us, because we have sought the LORD our God; we have sought Him, and He has given us rest on every side.” So they built and prospered.” (2 Chronicles 14:7)


Praise God for all the wonderful news that He’s been sending us this week. Through God’s grace, we received a letter today from the Town of Markham concerning the approval and confirmation of the new zoning by-law which is now in full effect allowing us to build the church and all its auxiliary uses. The new by-law which was approved on September 21, 2010 required an appeal period which has now passed and is now in full effect. This is a time of rejoicing, celebration, and thanksgiving to the Almighty God.
Please come this Sunday, October 31, and invite everyone, to celebrate the Divine Liturgy and to share in a historical day in which we will rejoice over all this wonderful news. A potluck brunch will follow the Liturgy. Also, expect another SURPRISE on Sunday after the Liturgy.
