Monday First Things - Teachings of the Holy Fathers 
21/6/21, 06:00 AM
Posted by Fr. Gregory


If we want, Christian, to have our heart filled with divine love we must first empty them of the love of this world, its frivolous and sinful customs and then turn our hearts to the one God, our only good and happiness and eternal beatitude.

Scripture Reading for the Coming Week 
20/6/21, 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 21:8-14 & John 14:27-15:7
Tuesday: Acts 21:26-32 & John 16:2-13
Wednesday: Acts 23:1-11 & John 16:15-23
Thursday: Acts 25:13-19 & John 16:23-33
Friday: Acts 27:1-44 & John 17:18-26
Saturday: Acts 28:1-31 & John 21:15-25

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

Volunteers Needed! 
19/6/21, 06:00 AM
Posted by Fr. Gregory


We need you! There are many, many things that need to be done at our parish and it simply is inefficient to burn out people one or two at a time by asking one or two people to do more than their share. It is much better for everyone to pitch in and share the work so that no one burns out this is how a family works. This year at our annual meeting we will discuss volunteer efforts as part of membership. That is, that sweat equity will be a part of what we, as parish family members, donate to the parish. Each of us only has time, talent, and treasure to give. Everyone understands about the treasure part. We need to pay bills. But we are under-utilizing the vast storehouse of time and talent found in our parish family! Let us begin to tap into that storehouse today! Visit the web site below to learn more about how you can help our parish family with your time and talent!

Evangelism: Give a Ride to Church 
18/6/21, 06:00 PM
Posted by Fr. Gregory


UM and EMU students need rides to church. We would like to have one person who is the organizer of these rides. This point person would organize drivers who are willing and able to pick up students on Sunday morning. Please talk to Fr. Gregory if you can organize or if you are willing to drive. A little effort in this way can be a BIG help to students. Speaking of Fr. Gregory, he was picked up at his dorm every Sunday morning by Milo & Olga Radulovic for his entire freshman year. We cant promise you well get another priest out of this deal, but this is the right thing to do. Please help if you can!
