Lampadas above the Royal Doors - Please be Attentive 
12/10/18, 06:00 AM
Posted by Fr. Gregory

We ask all to be attentive to the system we have devised to help folks know when they can and when they cannot move about during the Divine Services to light candles, etc. Even as we ask all to be attentive we also ask all to be loving, and if someone clearly is not aware that we have reached a time in the Divine Service when we should be still that we share that information with them lovingly and in a way that will not cause embarrassment. Please contact Fr. Gregory with questions or concerns. See flyer here - printable version (legal size):

Posted by Fr. Gregory

Most of us attend Liturgy regularly on Sundays, but rarely other days. Still, it is good to know when we make prostrations on weekdays, and this is why we have put together this handout. Please contact Fr. Gregory with questions. See the handout in PDF format here:

School Thanks + Next Steps 
9/10/18, 06:00 AM
Posted by Fr. Gregory

THANK YOU TO ALL who made it possible for us to meet and exceed our mandated goal for fund raising for the new school building. Already today Jack is running around finalizing permits and we are working to get the building up before the construction season ends. Please continue to pray for the success of this endeavor! God willing we will get the shell of the building up this construction season, prepare the interior during the winter, and be ready to welcome families to the school as they are making decisions about their 2019 school plans. If all goes well we will begin instruction in the fall of 2019 and this is our plan. Your spiritual and financial support have made this possible and we are VERY thankful for your efforts! With Gods help and your support we have great hope that instruction will begin in September 2019!

Monday First Things - Teachings of the Holy Fathers 
8/10/18, 06:00 AM
Posted by Fr. Gregory

And there appeared unto them cloven tongues like as of fire, and it sat upon each of them; and they were all filled with the Holy Spirit (Acts 2:3-4). They partook of fire, not of burning but of saving fire; of fire which consumes the thorns of sins, but gives luster to the soul. This is now coming upon you also, and that to strip away and consume your sins which are like thorns, and to brighten yet more that precious possession of your souls, and to give you grace; for He gave it then to the Apostles. And He sat upon them in the form of fiery tongues, that they might crown themselves with new and spiritual diadems by fiery tongues upon their heads. A fiery sword barred of old the gates of Paradise; a fiery tongue which brought salvation restored the gift.

Special Parish Meeting is Sunday, October 7, 2018 
3/10/18, 12:00 PM
Posted by Fr. Gregory


On Sunday, August 26, 2018 we held an extraordinary parish meeting at which the Parish Council was given a charge to secure pledges of $1,200/month for 5 years OR collect $70,000 by September 23 to begin construction of our parish day school. We didnt quite get there but we are close. And we have a lot of fund raising momentum. So at our Parish Council meeting on September 30, 2018 the council voted to call a special meeting on Sunday, October 7, 2018. Archbishop Peter has blessed us to hold this meeting. At this meeting the Parish Council will present a proposal, which was approved at the September 30 meeting, to begin building now. At this point, with the funds and pledges we have raised, we can accomplish a huge chunk of the project. And given the fund raising momentum, we have great hope that by the time we finish the part that the funds already raised will allow us to complete, the rest of the funds will have been raised and we can finish the project on time. But we need your support to do it! So please plan to join us at the meeting this Sunday. More information can be found here:

If you'd like to help us get even closer to our $1200/month goal please visit this link (or contact me - you can only give using a credit card at this link and we understand that doesn't work for everyone):

Please contact me or any Parish Council member with questions.

In Christ,

Fr. Gregory
