Great Lent Ending - Act Now! 
15/4/21, 06:00 PM
Posted by Fr. Gregory

It is hard to believe, but this coming Sunday is the LAST SUNDAY of Great Lent. Strictly speaking there are two lenten periods at this time of year: Great Lent and Holy Week. Great Lent ends with the Presanctified Liturgy on Friday, April 23. That means this Sunday is the last Sunday of Great Lent. The ideal response to this shocking news should be reflection. How have I done? What do I want to do before we meet the risen Christ on May 2? What is my plan for Holy Week? Maybe things have not been just what I planned, but how can I make good use of the rest of this most important time of year? As a help to your prayerful reflection we provide a link to our Holy Week and Bright Week schedule below. Please take advantage of the daily services those two weeks. This is a time for us to be in church as often as possible, walking with Christ during Holy Week and celebrating with Him and the disciples (and our parish family) in his Resurrection during Bright Week. May the Lord help us in our struggle!

Please join us Friday at 6:00 p.m. and Saturday at 8:00 a.m. for our monthly cycle of All-English Divine Services for the Laudation of the Theotokos! If you cannot come to the Evening Services or Liturgy please try to join us on one of our live streams.


All are welcome! The services will be inside the church, so we ask that you sign up.

Weekly Educational Offering - Prepare for the Coming Sunday!  
14/4/21, 06:00 AM
Posted by Fr. Gregory

We present here a short educational offering for both children and adults on the upcoming Sunday's principle Gospel reading so that all can better prepare for the Divine Services. 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: from the writings of Blessed Theophylact

For Youth: from the Antiochian Archdiocese (various age groups)

Great Standing of St. Andrew is this Wednesday 
13/4/21, 06:00 PM
Posted by Fr. Gregory

Please join us for the Standing of St. Andrew this Wednesday. We wont mince words this is a long service. One of the longest of the year. And it is a challenge and one we should embrace! At this service we read the entire penitential canon of St. Andrew of Crete, the entire life of St. Mary of Egypt, and the full Matins service in preparation for the Presanctified Liturgy on THURSDAY night. There is only one life of a saint that is mandated to be read in the Divine Services during the entire year. And this is the life of St. Mary of Egypt. This should tell us something it should tell us this is important and we should participate in this service as we are able. Ideally by attending the service, but if that is impossible, via the live stream. Please join us as your personal schedule allows!

The Liturgical Fast for those communing begins after breakfast for the 6:00 p.m. services. In other words, you may eat breakfast, but eat or drink nothing further after that.
