OUR SECOND PASCHA St. Vladimir Day is July 28 
25/7/18, 06:00 PM
Posted by Fr. Gregory


Vigil for St. Vladimirs day is set for 5:00 p.m. on July 27, with Divine Liturgy on July 28 at 9:00 a.m. Divine Liturgies will be lead by His Eminence Metropolitan Jonah.

Please take a moment now to REQUEST THIS DAY OFF OF WORK (if you usually work on Saturdays) if you have not done so yet. If you havent it may be too late. In which case, consider whether your sick days could be used for spiritual health and not just physical health...

We often under-estimate the importance of our parish feast day. Remember, this is our own SECOND PASCHA. We would never think of missing the Paschal services if there was any way to be there, and this is how we should approach this second most important day of the year for our parish family. Please join us!

Monday First Things: Teachings of the Holy Fathers 
23/7/18, 06:00 AM
Posted by Fr. Gregory

A psalm implies serenity of soul; it is the author of peace, which calms bewildering and seething thoughts. For, it softens the wrath of the soul, and what is unbridled it chastens. A psalm forms friendships, unites those separated, conciliates those at enmity. Who, indeed, can still consider as an enemy him with whom he has uttered the same prayer to God?

So that psalmody, bringing about choral singing, a bond, as it were, toward unity, and joining the people into a harmonious union of one choir, produces also the greatest of blessings, charity. A psalm is a city of refuge from the demons, a means of inducing help from the angels, a weapon in fears by night, a rest from toils by day, a safeguard for infants, an adornment for those at the height of their vigor, a consolation for the elders, a most fitting ornament for women.

It peoples the solitudes; it rids the market place of excesses; it is the elementary exposition of beginners, the improvement of those advancing, the solid support of the perfect, the voice of the Church. It brightens the feast days; it creates a sorrow which is in accordance with God.

For, a psalm is the work of angels, a heavenly institution, the spiritual incense.

+ St. Basil the Great
