Palm Sunday Special Instructions Please Help! 
17/4/19, 06:00 PM
Posted by Fr. Gregory


This Sunday we celebrate the triumphant Entry of the Lord into Jerusalem, known more popularly as Palm Sunday. The Liturgy for this feast is traditionally one of our largest of the year. We need your help to make things go as smoothly as possible!

1. We will commune from two chalices at least. If we have three priests we will have three chalices. Please help by stepping into the Communion line that has the fewest people in it. The exact same Communion is in each chalice no matter which priest is communing you.

2. Please move to the front of the parish church. Yes you. Everyone that reads this. And please tell all your friends that dont read this or deny reading this. :) Leave the back of the church for guests. They will be more comfortable there and we will thereby utilize our very limited space to the greatest extent possible.

3. Please do not park in the guest parking spots. Yes you. Those spots are for guests. A guest a new person who is visiting for their first or second or third time. If you are reading this you are probably not a guest. Please spread the word about this and support each other in this regard we need to be mature about this and be willing to walk a few more steps to church so a real guest has a nice place to park and is welcomed from the first possible moment they visit our parish.

Weekly Educational Offering - Prepare for the Coming Sunday! 
17/4/19, 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.

For Adults: from the writings of Blessed Theophylact

For Children: from the Antiochian Archdiocese (various age groups)

Youth Group Meetings for May are Moved to May 26 
15/4/19, 06:00 PM
Posted by Fr. Gregory


Please note that our Youth Groups will meet on May 26, rather than the originally scheduled May 19. On May 19 our parish will participate in the weekly meal at Sts. Peter & Paul Cathedral in Detroit in support of those with housing stability issues in the neighborhood there. All young people are strongly urged to participate! But for this reason we will need to move our Youth Group meetings to May 26. Please make a note of this!

Scripture Reading for the Coming Week 
14/4/19, 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: Isaiah 48:17-49:4, Genesis 27:1-41, Proverbs 19:16-25
Tuesday: Isaiah 49:6-10, Genesis 31:3-16, Proverbs 21:3-21
Wednesday: Isaiah 58:1-11, Genesis 43:26-31; 45:1-16, Proverbs 21:23-22:4
Thursday: Isaiah 65:8-16, Genesis 16:1-7, Proverbs 23:15-24:5
Friday: Isaiah 66:10-24, Genesis 49:33-50:26, Proverbs 31:8-32
Saturday: Hebrews 12:28-13:8 & John 11:1-45

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:
