To begin instruction in 2019 we need to build our school this construction season! But tuition income comes in only when classes begin. We are aiming for many small donations - everything helps and everyone can make a difference!

Join our school team and help us bridge that gap by making a donation today!

Monday First Things: Teachings of the Holy Fathers 
20/8/18, 06:00 AM
Posted by Fr. Gregory

Better a stupid and unlettered brother who, working the good things he knows, merits life in Heaven than one who though being distinguished for his learning in the Scriptures, or even holding the place of a doctor, lacks the bread of love.

Posted by Fr. Gregory

Most of us attend Liturgy regularly on Sundays, but rarely other days. Still, it is good to know when we make prostrations on weekdays, and this is why we have put together this handout. Please contact Fr. Gregory with questions. See the handout in PDF format here:

Monday First Things: Teachings of the Holy Fathers 
13/8/18, 06:00 AM
Posted by Fr. Gregory

You believe that God is one. You do well. The demons also believe, and they tremble. (James 2:19)

They alone know how to believe in God who love God, who are Christians not only in name but also in action and [way of] life, because without love faith is empty. With love, it is the faith of a Christian without love, the faith of a demon.

Scripture Reading for the Coming Week 
12/8/18, 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: II Corinthians 5:1-10 & Mark 1:9-15
Tuesday: II Corinthians 5:15-21 & Mark 1:16-22
Wednesday: II Corinthians 6:11-16 & Mark 1:23-28
Thursday: II Corinthians 7:1-10 & Mark 1:29-35
Friday: II Corinthians 7:10-16 & Mark 2:18-22
Saturday: I Corinthians 1:26-29 & Matthew 20:29-34

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:
