Confess Early – but not Often – for Pascha 
5/4/23, 12:00 PM
Posted by Fr. Gregory

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 Holy 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, VERY, VERY SERIOUS SIN. In other words, if you come for a second confession during this time please have a police report to present to the priest explaining your 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 an extraordinarily serious need to confess a second time.

Weekly Educational Offering - Prepare for the Coming Sunday! 
5/4/23, 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 children’s 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.

Wednesday, March 22

Matins & Great Lenten Hours
Утреня и великопостные
часы 3:00 p.m.

Presanctified Liturgy
Литургия Преждеосвященных Даров ~6:00 p.m.

Following Liturgy: Lenten Dinner ~ После Литургии: Постный Ужин

The Liturgical Fast for those communing begins after breakfast. In other words, you may eat breakfast, but eat or drink nothing further after that. Parents should use their best judgment regarding their children, as always. Those who confessed on the weekend prior to the Wednesday Presanctified need not confess again on/before Wednesday.

Пост для причащающихся начинается после завтрака, т.е. можно позавтракать, но не пить и не есть после завтрака. Как всегда, родители должны сами решить, что лучше всего подходит для детей. Исповедовавшиеся в предшествующую субботу или воскресенье в среду могут не исповедоваться.

Infants do not commune at this Liturgy ~ Младенцы не причащаются на этой Литургии

You are on Telegram – so we are too! Not that we need to spend more time on social media during Great Lent. But if you are on Telegram we will be too – maybe telling you to get off of social media and into your prayer corner! :)

“Praxis is not to try out and then retreat, but to enter the battle, duel, defeat and be defeated, win and lose, fall and rise, crush the gates everywhere, and to expect struggles and fights until one’s last breath.”

Scripture Reading for the Coming Week 
2/4/23, 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: Isaiah 48:17-49:4, Genesis 27:1-41, Proverbs 19:16-25
Tuesday: Isaiah 49:6-10, Genesis 31:3-16, Proverbs 21:3-21
Wednesday: Isaiah 58:1-11, Genesis 43:26-31; 45:1-16, Proverbs 21:23-22:4
Thursday: Isaiah 65:8-16, Genesis 16:1-7, Proverbs 23:15-24:5
Friday: Isaiah 66:10-24, Genesis 49:33-50:26, Proverbs 31:8-32
Saturday: Hebrews 12:28-13:8 & John 11:1-45

Понедельник: Исаии 48:17-49:4, Бытия 27:1-41, Причти 19:16-25
Вторник: Исаии 49:6-10, Бытия 31:3-16, Причти 21:3-21
Среда: Исаии 58:1-11, Бытия 43:26-31; 45:1-16, Причти 21:23-22:4
Четверг: Исаии 65:8-16, Бытия 16:1-7, Причти 23:15-24:5
Пятница: Исаии 66:10-24, Бытия 49:33-50:26, Причти 31:8-32
Суббота: Евр. 12:28-13:8 & от Иоанна 11:1-45

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