Non-Perishable Food Collections: Always at STV 
27/4/23, 06:00 PM
Posted by Fr. Gregory

At STV we collect non-perishable food items. Always. We don't have food drives - we do this every single day. There are many people in our local community who are food insecure. We ask our parishioners to bring a can or box of non-perishable food every time they come to church. Make this a part of your family worship! The little you give means a lot to a family who is food insecure. Remember our Lord's admonition to us in this regard: "For I was an hungred, and ye gave me meat: I was thirsty, and ye gave me drink: I was a stranger, and ye took me in: Naked, and ye clothed me: I was sick, and ye visited me: I was in prison, and ye came unto me. Then shall the righteous answer him, saying, Lord, when saw we thee an hungred, and fed thee? or thirsty, and gave thee drink? When saw we thee a stranger, and took thee in? or naked, and clothed thee? Or when saw we thee sick, or in prison, and came unto thee? And the King shall answer and say unto them, Verily I say unto you, Inasmuch as ye have done it unto one of the least of these my brethren, ye have done it unto me." (Matthew 25:35-40)

Parish Brotherhood to Occupy the Kitchen this Sunday! 
26/4/23, 06:00 PM
Posted by Fr. Gregory

This Sunday, April 30, marks one of the few precious days that our Brotherhood takes over the kitchen, the food, the cleanup - EVERYTHING having to do with our weekly parish meal. This Sunday is the Sunday of the Myrrh-Bearing Women and the Sisterhood is banned from their usual work (for which we are all VERY grateful)! If you've joined us for one of these Brotherhood-led meals you know this is something not to miss! If you've not joined us - make this the Sunday that you do! Congratulations to our hard-working Sisterhood on the feast! And thank you to our Brothers in advance for what will be, no doubt, an epic meal!

Weekly Educational Offering - Prepare for the Coming Sunday! 
26/4/23, 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.

Monday First Things - Teachings of the Holy Fathers 
24/4/23, 06:00 AM
Posted by Fr. Gregory

“How much worth, how much grandeur, what a great destiny man has, who is the very breath of God! That is, he was not created to live the few days of his exile here, but to live eternally with his Creator, to see the heavenly angels, and to hear their inexpressible melody. What joy! What grandeur! As soon as this life of ours reaches its end and these eyes close, immediately the other ones open and the new life begins—the true joy that does not end.”

Scripture Reading for the Coming Week 
23/4/23, 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: Acts 3:19-26 & John 2:1-11
Tuesday: Acts 4:1-10 & John 3:16-21
Wednesday: Acts 4:13-22 & John 5:17-24
Thursday: Acts 4:23-31 & John 5:24-30
Friday: Acts 5:1-11 & John 5:30-6:2
Saturday: Acts 5:21-33 & John 6:14-27

Понедельник: Деян. 3:19-26 и от Иоанна John 2:1-11
Вторник: Деян. 4:1-10 и от Иоанна 3:16-21
Среда: Деян. 4:13-22 и от Иоанна 5:17-24
Четверг: Деян. 4:23-31 и от Иоанна 5:24-30
Пятница: Деян. 5:1-11 и от Иоанна 5:30-6:2
Суббота: Деян. 5:21-33 и от Иоанна 6:14-27

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

By St. Justin (Popovich)

By Bishop Kalistos (Ware)
