Children's Liturgy is May 2 Sign Up NOW! 
28/4/16, 06:00 AM
Posted by Fr. Gregory
Please note that our annual Paschal Children's Liturgy is set for May 2. That is, on Bright Monday morning. This is important to attend to because we are urging parents to have their children excused from school on May 2 if at all possible. At least for the morning. We realize this is not as convenient as having the Liturgy on a Saturday, but because of some scheduling conflicts that cannot be resolved we have to serve on Monday this year. Thank you for your understanding and please plan to join us! Parents should sign up for their children to fill the various duties surrounding the Divine Liturgy at this link:

Reading the Acts of the Apostles on Holy Saturday Night 
27/4/16, 06:00 PM
Posted by Fr. Gregory
We are seeking readers to read the Acts of the Apostles in as many languages as possible again this year. Since this tradition has grown in popularity in recent years this year we will again begin the reading of the Acts of the Apostles at 9:00 p.m. on Holy Saturday, April 30. This reading sends a very important and stark message: Christianity is the faith for all peoples. Thus, we try to read the Acts before the tomb of Christ in as many languages as we can. Last year we read in 14 languages. Let's break that record this year! Contact our Head Reader, Ken Doll, to sign up for your slot to read in the language of your choice.

Weekly Educational Offering  
27/4/16, 06:00 AM
Posted by Fr. Gregory
We present here a short educational offering for both children and adults. Parents are asked to review the childrens portion with their children. It is very important for us to attend the Divine Services on Sundays and whenever else we are able, but in addition it is our spiritual responsibility to educate ourselves and our families in the faith. It is our hope that this mid-week offering will be an aid in this regard. Please contact Fr. Gregory with questions or suggestions.

For Adults: the explanation of the Sunday gospel reading from Blessed Theophylact:

For Children an activity based on last Sunday's Gospel reading for various ages:

Confess Early for Pascha 
26/4/16, 06:00 PM
Posted by Fr. Gregory
Please plan to come to Confession for Pascha early! All those who confess beginning on Friday, April 22 do not have to confess afterwards again in order to go to Communion on Pascha itself or for the entire Bright Week. Everyone should be planning to go to Communion on Pascha, as this is the Feast of Feasts, the most important spiritual day of the Orthodox year. Please see Fr. Gregory with questions, and PLEASE come early to Confession!

Great Lent began March 14 - Pascha is May 1  
26/4/16, 06:00 AM
Posted by Fr. Gregory
Please note that Great Lent began this year on March 14. During Great Lent we abstain from meat and dairy products including fish (although fish is allowed on the Annunciation April 7, and Palm Sunday April 24). Let us recall that fasting is a tool given to us by God to aid us spiritually. For some it is easy to fast, for others it is difficult. However, what is most important is that we make a sincere effort to follow the fast. Why? Simply because the fast helps us to see our sins by helping us to focus spiritually. Eating light foods, or perhaps rather, abstaining from heavy foods such as meats and cheeses, allows us to be less focused on our stomachs and more focused on our souls, and of course, in this season when we undergo our journey to the Resurrection of our Lord we dearly wish to improve ourselves spiritually that we might meet the risen Christ better than we were when we began Great Lent. St. John Chrysostom writes that we abstain from meats that we might abstain from our sins. This nicely sums up the reason the Holy Church, as a loving mother, gives us the gift of fasting. Pascha is May 1 may God grant us all a spiritually profitable Great Lent!
