Young people who can read clearly and loudly are welcome and urged to participate! THIS IS A GREAT OPPORTUNITY FOR YOUNG PEOPLE TO BE ENGAGED IN PARISH LIFE! Research shows that it is very important for young people to be engaged now so they persist in the Church into adulthood.

40 Martyrs of Sebaste is March 21 
20/3/17, 06:00 AM
Posted by Fr. Gregory

Yes – this year this feast falls on MARCH 21. It is true that the commemoration of the Martyrs is March 22, but when March 22 is the middle Wednesday of Great Lent (as it is this year), the commemoration of the Cross moves the feast of the Martyrs to March 21. Please join us and please spread the word about the translation of the feast. A flyer to share can be found here:

Scripture Readings for the Coming Week 
19/3/17, 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 14:24-32, Genesis 8:21-9:7, Proverbs 11:19-12:6
Tuesday: Isaiah 25:1-9, Genesis 9:8-17, Proverbs 12:8-22
Wednesday: Isaiah 26:21-27:9, Genesis 9:18-10:1, Proverbs 12:21-13:9
Thursday: Isaiah 28:14-22, Genesis 10:32-11:9, Proverbs 13:20-14:6
Friday: Isaiah 29:13-23, Genesis 12:1-7, Proverbs 14:15-26
Saturday: Hebrews 6:9-12 & Mark 7:31-37

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

By St. Justin (Popovich):

http://www.orthodoxinfo.com/phronema/bible_how.aspx

By Bishop Kalistos (Ware):

http://www.orthodoxinfo.com/phronema/ware_howto.aspx

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:
