The feast of the 14,000 Martyrs of Bethlehem has become the feast for those who have lost children through miscarriage, infant death, abortion, or in some other way. It has been our practice for some years to serve for this feast, which always falls on December 29/January 11. Thank God, we have the opportunity this year to do the same. Evening Services are at 6:00 p.m. on January 10, with Liturgy on January 11 at 8:00 a.m. Please join us as your personal schedule allows!

Posted by Fr. Gregory


More detailed information will be available soon, but you can sign up now at the link below. Join us for a short procession (1-2 miles walking at most). During the procession we will stop at some logical place (town square, etc.) and hold a short concert and/or serve a short moleben. We will provide a traditional Orthodox witness to our communities: we will have information about Orthodox Christianity available for those who are interested, and talk to those who would like to learn more. As January 20 marks the annual March for Life, this will be a cross procession specifically focused on the Orthodox Church's teaching that life begins at conception. Dont miss this great opportunity to bring our faith to our neighbors! Sign up for Brighton today!


All are welcome - join us!

Scripture Reading for the Coming Week 
8/1/23, 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: Hebrews 11:17-23, 27-31 & Mark 10:46-52
Tuesday: Hebrews 12:25-26, 13:22-25 & Mark 11:11-23
Wednesday: James 1:1-18 & Mark 11:23-26
Thursday: James 1:19-27 & Mark 11:27-33
Friday: James 2:1-13 & Mark 12:1-12
Saturday: Colossians 2:8-12 & Luke 2:20-21, 40-52

: . 11:17-23, 27-31 10:46-52
: . 12:25-26, 13:22-25 11:11-23
: . 1:1-18 11:23-26

: . 2:1-13 12:1-12

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

Monday First Things - Teachings of the Holy Fathers 
8/1/23, 06:00 AM
Posted by Fr. Gregory

Without temptations, pure souls are not known, virtue does not show, patience is not discernible. Without temptations, it is impossible for the soul to become healthy. They are the cleansing fire which makes the soul pure and bright.
