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):

No Cell Phones in Church Please 
2/10/18, 06:00 PM
Posted by Fr. Gregory

Please be courteous to your fellow worshipers and be sure to turn off your cell phone when entering the church, or at the very least turn the ringer to the vibrate function. When traveling in Russia Fr. Gregory saw this sign: "Those cell phones that ring in church will be submerged in Holy Water!". We will not go that far, but we hope this helps you remember how important it is to turn off your phone...

Thank you for you attention to this important matter!
