Brotherhood, Sisterhood, Clergy, Choir EVERYONE! We all need to chip in an take care of the property the Lord has given to us, just as we all need to work together to execute our beautiful Divine Services. Please mark your calendars now for every second Saturday of the month for an all-parish work day. Every season. Every month. Inside. Outside. Always every second Saturday starting at 10:00 a.m. please plan to join us to pitch in as we make our parish shine as the House of God that it is! Invite friends! Everyone is welcome! And it just isnt fair to expect that someone else will do this. We all own our parish in that the Lord has given us to be here and to the responsibility that He has given us to care for His House.

Weekly Educational Offering - Prepare for the Coming Sunday! 
3/8/22, 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 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.

Monday First Things - Teachings of the Holy Fathers 
1/8/22, 06:00 AM
Posted by Fr. Gregory

Many storms and hurricanes disturb the atmosphere and cause various kinds of destruction, but for all this, King David elicits the praise of God. And the actions of evil spirits, like the storms, disturb the hearts and souls of people on earth. What is there for us, who are infirm, to do? One of the nearest and surest means of help is raising our hands to the Lord God, like Moses in the desert, where the enemy forces of Amalik attacked him. Through the All-Highest God we will surmount the wall of temptations. God is with us. And we must not be overly afraid.

Scripture Reading for the Coming Week 
31/7/22, 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

: I . 9:13-18 16:1-6
: I . 10:5-12 16:6-12
: I . 10:12-22 16:20-24
: I . 10:28-11:7 16:24-28
: I . 11:8-22 17:10-18
: . 13:1-10 12:30-37

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