Food Gatherers Donations THANK YOU! 
19/10/21, 06:00 PM
Posted by Fr. Gregory

We just received word from Food Gatherers that we have recently donated 2000 pounds of food to their feeding program. Thank you to everyone who has made it their good habit to bring non-perishable food items to church! And if you havent picked up that good habit yet: please give yourself a little push and ask the Lords help to acquire this good habit. With our small effort and Gods Grace all things are possible! Now Food Gatherers needs most: canned soups, canned meats (tuna, chicken, etc.), dry pasta, and rice. Need to buy those things for your family? Thrown one more can or box into your shopping cart and invest, as St. John Chrysostom says, in the stomachs of those in need, for the dividends are treasure in Heaven!

It is not right to correct a brother at the moment when he is doing something wrong, or at any other time for the sake of getting back our own.

Scripture Reading for the Coming Week 
17/10/21, 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 4:25-32 & Luke 6:24-30
Tuesday: Ephesians 5:20-26 & Luke 6:37-45
Wednesday: Ephesians 5:25-33 & Luke 6:25-7:1
Thursday: Ephesians 5:33-6:9 & Luke 7:17-30
Friday: Ephesians 6:18-24 & Luke 7:31-35
Saturday: I Corinthians 15:39-45 & Luke 5:27-32

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