Weekly Educational Offering - Prepare for the Coming Sunday! 
20/1/21, 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 Everyone: from the Antiochian Archdiocese (various age groups)

Construction continues! Can you spare $10? 
19/1/21, 06:00 PM
Posted by Fr. Gregory


Construction on our parish day school, the Ann Arbor Orthodox Christian Academy, continues this week. The walls are going up! Soon the roof will be there too. The Lord has blessed us to get this far, and we are thankful all your support! But now it is time to strengthen our foundation of support. You cant build a building without a strong foundation. That is true physically (we are using cement for the school, so that part is done), and that is true financially. As of 1/18/21 we have $910 in monthly recurring donations supporting the school. This is great! This is the beginning of a good foundation thank God! And it is going up every week! Our monthly mortgage payment on the school will be about $1500 and we need to get our recurring donations to this point ASAP. Thats 59 more people at $10 per month. If every adult member of our parish (about 150 folks) can donate $10 per month we are more than done! This is a parish-wide project lets all join in and make it happen as a parish family! The school is the jumping off point to the new church help us build this step to get quickly to the next!

Every member of our Board of Directors has established a monthly recurring donation, as have many of our parishioners and some folks from outside the parish. JOIN US! $10/month. $120/year. Just about $2/week. Visit this link to establish your monthly donation and assure that Orthodox education in Michigan has a firm foundation:

HELP BUILD OUR PARISH SCHOOL!

Monday First Things - Teachings of the Holy Fathers 
18/1/21, 06:00 AM
Posted by Fr. Gregory


You must never be afraid, if you are troubled by a flood of thoughts, that the enemy is too strong against you, that his attacks are never ending, that the war will last for your lifetime, and that you cannot avoid incessant downfalls of all kinds. Know that our enemies, with all their wiles, are in the hands of our divine Commander, our Lord Jesus Christ, for Whose honour and glory you are waging war. Since He himself leads you into battle, He will certainly not suffer your enemies to use violence against you and overcome you, if you do not yourself cross over to their side with your will. He will Himself fight for you and will deliver your enemies into your hands, when He wills and as He wills, as it is written: The Lord thy God walketh in the midst of thy camp, to deliver thee, and to give up thine enemies before thee (Deut. Xxii, 14).
