Three Hierarchs is this Friday 
9/2/16, 06:00 PM
Posted by Fr. Gregory
Please join us for Divine Services for the feast of the Three Hierarchs: St. Basil the Great, St. Gregory the Theologian, and St. John Chrysostom. As a parish with many people engaged in intellectual pursuits these three saints - the most brilliant thinkers of their times who used their education for the glory of God - are important examples for us! Vigil is February 11 at 6:00 p.m. with Divine Liturgy at 8:00 a.m. on February 12. Please join us as your personal schedule allows!

Thank you to all who donated non-perishable food items and made contributions to help those in need after yesterday's service! The Denver Broncos may have won the Super Bowl, but those in need in Washtenaw County won our Souper Bowl. If you missed it or if you left your non-perishable food items at home by mistake you have another chance this coming Sunday! Please see Marina Edwards, our IOCC Parish Liaison, to donate food or funds to those in need.

Scripture Reading for the Coming Week  
7/2/16, 06:00 PM
Posted by Fr. Gregory
"This is the cause of all evils: the ignorance of the Scriptures. We go into battle without arms, and how ought we to come off safe?" -St. John Chrysostom, Homily IX on Colossians.

In order to help increase the general knowledge of scripture in our parish family we present here for your edification the scripture readings for the coming week. At least one Gospel Reading and one Epistle reading are assigned for each day of the year (although during Great Lent the readings are from the Old Testament). Hearing or reading only those readings appointed for Sunday merely scratches the surface of the great spiritual wealth that the scriptures provide us. Some of the readings are easily understandable – others are less so. As Orthodox Christians we do not make private interpretation of scripture, but rather consult the fathers of the Church for their explanations to aid us in our understanding. Those wishing to have access to such explanations are asked to contact Fr. Gregory or inquire in the kiosk for further reading in this regard. Bibles may also be acquired in the kiosk.

Monday: James 2:14-26 & Mark 10:46-52
Tuesday: James 3:1-10 & Mark 11:11-23
Wednesday: James 3:11-4:6 & Mark 11:23-26
Thursday: James 4:7-5:9 & Mark 11:27-33
Friday: I Peter 1:1-2,10-12,2:6-10 & Mark 12:1-12
Saturday: I Thessalonians 5:14-23 & Luke 17:3-10

Please find below several very nice articles on how to read the scripture from an Orthodox point of view.

By St. Justin (Popovich):

http://www.orthodoxinfo.com/phronema/bible_how.aspx

By Bishop Kalistos (Ware):

http://www.orthodoxinfo.com/phronema/ware_howto.aspx

This short article explains to us not just HOW to read the scriptures, but also what our goal should be in reading the scriptures. A short read and well worth it:

As noted in the article above we need God's help and blessing to read and understand the scriptures correctly. What better way to entreat God's help in this regard than through prayer? Please find the prayer before reading the scriptures here:
