Weekly Educational Offering - Prepare for the Coming Sunday! 
22/2/23, 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 Various Ages: from the Antiochian Archdiocese

Midnight Office Canceled Wednesday 
21/2/23, 11:30 PM
Posted by Fr. Gregory

Due to the confluence of the funeral of Priest Daniel Shirak and the impending ice storm, the Midnight Office scheduled for Wednesday morning at 9:00 a.m. has been canceled. Fr. Daniel must be vested in his priestly vestments before the funeral, and with the ice storm approaching, this must be done on Wednesday morning. Please spread the word to those whom you know, or even suspect, were planning to attend the service on Wednesday morning. We ask the forgiveness of all for any inconvenience.

Monday First Things - Teachings of the Holy Fathers 
20/2/23, 06:00 AM
Posted by Fr. Gregory

Just as man was first fashioned and then breathed into, thus praxis must precede theoria. Everything done by the body is called praxis, whereas everything done by the mind is called theoria. It is impossible to reach thoria without praxis. So struggle now in everything that praxis requires, and the more spiritual things will come by themselves.

Scripture Reading for the Coming Week 
19/2/23, 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: III John 1:1-15 & Luke 19:29-40,22:7-39
Tuesday: Jude 1:1-10 & Luke 22:39-42,22:45-23:1
Wednesday: Joel 2:12-26 & Joel 3:12-21
Thursday: Jude 1:11-25 & Luke 23:1-34,44-56
Friday: Zechariah 8:7-17 & Zechariah 8:19-23
Saturday: Romans 14:19-26 & Matthew 6:1-13

: III . 1:1-15 19:29-40,22:7-39
: 1:1-10 22:39-42,22:45-23:1
: 2:12-26 3:12-21
: 4:20-5:21 23:1-34,44-56
: 8:7-17 8:19-23
: . 14:19-26 6:1-13

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