Weekly Educational Offering 
26/7/17, 06:00 AM
Posted by Fr. Gregory

We present here a short educational offering for both children and adults. Parents are asked to review the childrens 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.

For Adults: from the writings of Blessed Theophylact:

For children, from the Antiochian Archdiocese (various age groups):

SECOND PASCHA IS THIS THURSDAY! 
25/7/17, 06:00 PM
Posted by Fr. Gregory

Vigil for St. Vladimirs day is set for 6:00 p.m. on July 27, with Divine Liturgy on July 28 at 9:00 a.m.

Please note: Vigil time has changed since Metropolitan Jonah cannot join us for the feast.

Please take a moment now to REQUEST THIS DAY OFF OF WORK if you have not done so yet. If you havent it may be too late. In which case, consider whether your sick days could be used for spiritual health and not just physical health...

We often under-estimate the importance of our parish feast day. Remember, this is our own SECOND PASCHA. We would never think of missing the Paschal services if there was any way to be there, and this is how we should approach this second most important day of the year for our parish family. Please join us!

24/7/17, 06:00 PM
Posted by Fr. Gregory

It is time to make IOCC School Kits again. These kits make it possible for children to attend school who otherwise would not have the opportunity. In most countries school supplies are NOT supplied by the school, and that is what these kits are all about! On Sunday, August 20, after the Divine Liturgy, we will take up a collection to help pay for the kits. On Saturday, August 26 at 4:00 p.m. we will build the kits. Please join us! Young people are especially encouraged to participate!

Scripture Readings for the Coming Week  
23/7/17, 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: I Corinthians 9:13-18 & Matthew 16:1-6
Tuesday: I Corinthians 10:5-12 & Matthew 16:6-12
Wednesday: I Corinthians 10:12-22 & Matthew 16:20-24
Thursday: I Corinthians 10:28-11:7 & Matthew 16:24-28
Friday: I Corinthians 11:8-22 & Matthew 17:10-18
Saturday: Romans 13:1-10 & Matthew 12:30-37

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:

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:
