Monday First Things - Teachings of the Holy Fathers 
11/10/21, 06:00 AM
Posted by Fr. Gregory


He who does not hold to his own will always has what he will; for externally he does not get his own way but whatever happens, no matter what it is, gives him quiet satisfaction and he discovers for himself that he has what he will. For he does not want things to happen as he wishes; he wants things to have happened as they happen.

Scripture Reading for the Coming Week 
10/10/21, 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: Ephesians 1:22-2:3 & Luke 4:37-44
Tuesday: Ephesians 2:19-3:7 & Luke 5:12-16
Wednesday: Ephesians 3:8-21 & Luke 5:33-39
Thursday: Ephesians 4:14-19 & Luke 6:12-19
Friday: Ephesians 4:17-25 & Luke 6:17-23
Saturday: I Corinthians 14:20-25 & Luke 5:17-23

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

Festival Parish Meeting/Report Out is October 17 
8/10/21, 06:00 PM
Posted by Fr. Gregory

Please plan to join us during our parish meal on Sunday, October 17. At that meal we will report on the festival financial results and we will seek your feedback. Both of these things are important for our parish family. Right now our main question for next year is: how can we attract more volunteers from outside the parish? Of course we would like to get more of our parish family involved, but we need outside help as the festival grows. Your input in this regard will be most welcome. And all the other ideas you have to make the festival even better next year!

If you cant join us on October 17, or if you prefer to send your information rather than speak up at the meeting, please visit one of the festival surveys below.

Festival Volunteers Only

Festival Goers (not Volunteers)
