Scripture Reading for the Coming Week 
1/7/18, 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: Romans 16:17-24 & Matthew 13:10-23
Tuesday: I Corinthians 1:1-9 & Matthew 13:24-30
Wednesday: I Corinthians 2:9-3:8 & Matthew 13:31-36
Thursday: I Corinthians 3:18-23 & Matthew 13:36-43
Friday: I Corinthians 4:5-8 & Matthew 13:44-54
Saturday: Romans 9:1-5 & Matthew 9:18-26

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):

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:

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:

Hawaii Iveron Icon to Visit St. Vladimirs June 30-July 1 
28/6/18, 06:00 AM
Posted by Fr. Gregory

With the blessing of Archbishop Peter the Hawaiian Myrrh-Streaming Icon of the Mother of God will visit St. Vladimirs Saturday June 30 through Sunday July 1.

As has become our usual parish practice, we will hold an all night vigil before the icon at St. Valdimirs. Please sign up here to commit to being at the church at a set time so that the icon will always have at least two people with it:

https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1iGi_Np3Ubj5oAFyjzom826MtBYFnDW5QDCGLDtLdUSU/edit?usp=sharing

Also we are seeing a host family to house the icons protector, Reader Nectarios. Please contact Fr. Gregory if you can help in this way. The icon and Reader Nectarios will depart after the Divine Liturgy on Sunday, July 1.

Let us all make a sincere effort to participate in this activity for the glory of God and His Most Pure Mother!
