Great Lent has Begun 
18/2/18, 11:59 PM
Posted by Fr. Gregory

We congratulate all our parish family on the beginning of the Holy and Great Lent! This is a special time of year for all of us when we put away the cares of this world to the greatest extent possible and in a much more focused way examine our consciences, forgive each other, and seek forgiveness from our merciful Lord. Yesterday the Holy Church commemorated the casting out of Adam from Paradise. In today's Divine Services the first scripture reading is the beginning of Genesis today is a new beginning for us all. May God grant us all a spiritually fruitful lent as we prepare ourselves for the feast of feasts the Glorious Resurrection of our Lord Jesus Christ!

Please find here the prayer of St. Ephraim. This prayer is said at every weekday Divine Service of Great Lent and it is common practice to include this prayer in our daily home prayers as well:

Forgiveness Sunday is February 18 Time to Make Plans Do Not Miss! 
15/2/18, 06:00 PM
Posted by Fr. Gregory

One of the most important Sundays of the Church Year is coming up soon. This is Forgiveness Sunday the day before Great Lent begins. This year Forgiveness Sunday is February 18. ALL ORTHODOX CHRISTIANS SHOULD ATTEND LITURGY AND VESPERS AFTER LITURGY THIS DAY. On this day, immediately after Divine Liturgy, we liturgically begin Great Lent with the beautiful, meaningful, and incredibly necessary Forgiveness Vespers. At this service (which is not long less than an hour) we hear the beautiful words of the Lenten Triodian calling us to repentance and spiritual struggle during Great Lent. But even more importantly we perform the order of forgiveness where each of us bows down before the other and sincerely asks forgiveness for all the offenses, known and unknown, that we have caused to our brothers and sisters in Christ. As the Lord tells us in the Gospel: Therefore if thou bring thy gift to the altar, and there rememberest that thy brother hath ought against thee; Leave there thy gift before the altar, and go thy way; first be reconciled to thy brother, and then come and offer thy gift. (Matthew 5:23-24) Our gift to God during Great Lent is our spiritual struggle. But that gift will be unaccepted if we do not first forgive/reconcile with our parish family members. Let us make our gift acceptable and begin Great Lent by forgiving each other at Forgiveness Vespers February 18!

Weekly Educational Offering - Prepare for the Coming Sunday!  
14/2/18, 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: an explanation of this coming Sunday's Gospel reading from Blessed Theophylact:
