Weekly Educational Offering - Prepare for the Coming Sunday! 
22/9/21, 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 Youth: from the Antiochian Archdiocese (various age groups)

Join us for Divine Services THIS WEEK 
20/9/21, 06:00 PM
Posted by Fr. Gregory

Please plan to join us for the feast of the Nativity of the Mother of God (the first great feast of the Church Year) on September 20 at 6:00 p.m. for Evening Services on September 21 at 8:00 a.m. for Divine Liturgy. As an exception, it is blessed to work at the festival cleanup and listen to the Vigil there.

Also the feast of Sts. Joachim & Anna will be served on Tuesday evening, September 21, at 6:00 p.m. for Evening Services and on Wednesday morning, September 22, for Divine Liturgy. Both Fr. Gregory and Fr. Colin will be way on Wednesday, so we have invited a visiting priest to serve Liturgy for our Annas (we have no Joachims yet). Please be sure to celebrate your names day by attending Divine Liturgy and partaking of the Holy Mysteries so that our visiting priest does not serve for an empty church!

If you cannot come to the Evening Services or Liturgy please try to join us on one of our live streams:

Monday First Things - Teachings of the Holy Fathers

Posted by Fr. Gregory


If it is my duty to get something done, I prefer it to be done with my neighbors advice, even if I do not agree with him and it goes wrong, rather than to be guided by my own opinion and have it turn out right.

Scripture Reading for the Coming Week 
19/9/21, 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: II Corinthians 12:10-19 & Mark 4:10-23
Tuesday: II Corinthians 12:20-13:2 & Mark 4:24-34
Wednesday: II Corinthians 13:3-14 & Mark 4:35-41
Thursday: Galatians 1:1-10,20-2:5 & Mark 5:1-20
Friday: Galatians 2:6-10 & Mark 5:22-24,35-6:1
Saturday: I Corinthians 4:1-5 & Matthew 23:1-12

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