Scripture Readings for the Coming Week 
9/4/17, 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: Matthew 21:18-43, Ezekiel 1:1-20, Exodus 1:1-20, Job 1:1-12, Matthew 24:3-35
Tuesday: Matthew 22:15-23:39, Ezekiel 1:21-2:1, Exodus 2:5-10, Job 1:13-22, Matthew 24:36-26:2
Wednesday: John 12:17-50, Ezekiel 2:3-3:3, Exodus 2:11-22, Job 2:1-10, Matthew 26:6-16
Thursday: Luke 22-1-39, Matthew 26:1-20, John 13:3-17, Matthew 26:21-39, Luke 22:43-45, Matthew 26:40-27:2
Friday: Please attend the Divine Services – the list of readings is too long to publish here
Saturday: Romans 6:3-11 & Matthew 28:1-20

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:

http://www.chrysostompress.org/reading_scripture.html

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:

Lazarus Saturday - All the Details 
6/4/17, 06:00 PM
Posted by Fr. Gregory

Lazarus Saturday is the first day of Holy Week. This year the date is April 8. Each year this is a very full day for us - this year being no exception! Please note:

1. CHURCH SCHOOL GENERAL CONFESSION & COMMUNION: all young people of the parish are strongly encouraged to attend the Matins service on Friday at 6:00 p.m. and to confess during or after the service. The service is short - do not come late! Parents - you will have to drive. Please get this on your child's schedule now.

2. CHURCH SCHOOL IS NOT HELD AT 5:00 P.M. ON LAZARUS SATURDAY: Church School IS the Divine Liturgy and the partaking of Holy Communion on this day, as well as participating in the arranging of Palms and Pussy Willows after the Divine Liturgy. THERE IS NO CHURCH SCHOOL AT 5:00 P.M. THIS DAY!

3. CONFESS EARLY BUT NOT OFTEN: those who confess beginning on Friday, April 7 and any time during Holy Week may partake of Divine Communion during any of the Holy Week & Bright Week Divine Liturgies if they have read their pre-Communion rule. Please plan to come to Confession early in the week so that your Confession will not be rushed due to long lines of others waiting for Confession. ONCE YOU HAVE CONFESSED YOU SHOULD NOT CONFESS AGAIN UNLESS YOU FALL INTO A VERY SERIOUS SIN. There are MANY who need to confess this week - literally hundreds. Please be merciful to your priests and only confess one time unless there is a very serious need to confess a second time.
