Scripture Reading for the Coming Week 
20/1/19, 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: Hebrews 8:7-13 & Mark 8:11-21
Tuesday: Hebrews 9:8-10,15-23 & Mark 8:22-26
Wednesday: Hebrews 10:1-18 & Mark 8:30-34
Thursday: Hebrews 10:35-11:7 & Mark 9:10-16
Friday: Hebrews 11:8,11-16 & Mark 9:33-41
Saturday: Ephesians 6:10-17 & Matthew 4:1-11

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

By St. Justin (Popovich):

By Bishop Kalistos (Ware):

http://www.orthodoxinfo.com/phronema/ware_howto.aspx

This short article explains to us not just HOW to read the scriptures, but also what our goal should be in reading the scriptures. A short read and well worth it:

As noted in the article above we need God's help and blessing to read and understand the scriptures correctly. What better way to entreat God's help in this regard than through prayer? Please find the prayer before reading the scriptures here:

No Vigil Tonight - January 19 
19/1/19, 02:30 PM
Posted by Fr. Gregory


Friends,

Congratulations to all with the Great Feast! Thank you to Fr. Moses for leading this morning. Im still fighting whatever is causing me this headache. Please remember me in your prayers!

There will be no vigil tonight at St. Vladimirs. By tomorrow morning the parking lots will be clear and so should all the roads, so unless something very unexpected happens we will serve Liturgy as scheduled at 10:00 a.m. tomorrow.

Thank you for your understanding. Please pass the word to those who you know or suspect were planning to attend vigil that there will be no services tonight.

In Christ,

Fr. Gregory

Emergency Cards Available 
19/1/19, 06:00 AM
Posted by Fr. Gregory

The diocese has provided each of our parishes with Emergency Cards. These cards are to be filled out and put in your wallet so that if it were ever to happen that you were in an accident or otherwise needed spiritual support, but could not speak for yourself, the authorities would find the card in your wallet and call Fr. Gregory to come to you. We hope none of our parishioners ever needs to use one of these cards, but it is a good idea to have one just in case. Please see Fr. Gregory if you have questions. Emergency cards can be found near the front doors - near the pamphlets that are available to all for free.

Friends,

I ask your forgiveness. I have a bad migraine headache this morning and it will be impossible for me to serve. There will be no services this morning. God willing all will be well by this evening and we will hold vigil at 6:00 p.m. as scheduled.

Let me take this opportunity to remind everyone that today is a fast day.

In Christ,

Fr. Gregory
