Scripture Readings for the Coming Week 
26/2/17, 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: Isaiah 1:1-20, Genesis 1:1-13, Proverbs 1:1-20
Tuesday: Isaiah 1:19-2:3, Genesis 1:14-23, Proverbs 1:20-33
Wednesday: Isaiah 2:3-11, Genesis 1:24-2:3, Proverbs 2:1-22
Thursday: Isaiah 2:11-21, Genesis 2:4-19, Proverbs 3:1-18
Friday: Isaiah 3:1-14, Genesis 2:20-3:20, Proverbs 3:19-34
Saturday: Hebrews 1:1-12 & Mark 2:23-3:5

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

By St. Justin (Popovich):


By Bishop Kalistos (Ware):


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:

Posted by Fr. Gregory

On Sunday, February 19, 2017 we held our parish annual assembly. Thank you to all who made the meeting informative, interesting, and positive! Minutes of the meeting will be available on our web site once they have been completed by the editing committee – sometime during the first week of Great Lent. We can say that the folks listed were elected to parish offices at yesterday's meeting and, once they have been ratified by Archbishop Peter, will officially take on their duties. All parish elected offices have a term of one year, except Starosta, which has a three year term.

Thank you to all who served last year and to those who are willing to serve this year! We will have a parish special meeting shortly after Pascha to elect two more trustees to the Parish Council, one more member of the Auditing Committee, and to hear the Church School report.

Starosta (term runs through 2019): Jack (Alexey) Mitchell

Treasurer: Marina Edwards

Secretary: Alexandre Alexandrov

Parish Council Trustees:

Mikhail Fisenkov
Nathan (Nathaniel) Longan
Natalia Veniaminova

Auditing Committee:
