CONFESSIONS- Everyone seems to be busy at this time of the year: busy traveling, busy working, busy getting ready for Christmas, busy making or purchasing gifts.  As the Feast of the Lord’s Nativity draws near, do not forget to also prepare yourself spiritually before receiving the Holy Gifts on Christmas morning.  An essential part of our spiritual preparation is the confession of our sins and receiving the Lord’s forgiveness.  Confessions are heard before the Divine Services or by arrangements with Bishop DANIEL, Father David or Father Mihai.  Social distancing and masks are worn for confessions.

TIME FOR THANKS:   As we enter the season of the Lord’s Nativity, we pause and give thanks for the many blessings we have received throughout the year, especially the blessings received because of the generosity in time, talents, and treasures of our parish community.  There are too many people to name individually.  The Lord knows you all…  But please be assured of the gratitude of Archbishop BENJAMIN, Bishop DANIEL, Father David, Father Mihai, Deacon John, all the clergy and faithful of our parish community.  May the Lord Himself, He Who is “God with Us,” be your reward!

The Mission of The Orthodox Church in America, the local autocephalous Orthodox Christian Church, is to be faithful in fulfilling the commandment of Christ to “Go into all the world and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit…”

The Holy Scripture is a collection of books written over multiple centuries by those inspired by God to do so. It is the primary witness to the Orthodox Christian faith, within Holy Tradition and often described as its highest point. It was written by the prophets and apostles in human language, inspired by the Holy Spirit, and collected, edited, and canonized by the Church.

Daily Readings >

Holiness or sainthood is a gift (charisma) given by God to man, through the Holy Spirit. Man's effort to become a participant in the life of divine holiness is indispensable, but sanctification itself is the work of the Holy Trinity, especially through the sanctifying power of Jesus Christ, who was incarnate, suffered crucifixion, and rose from the dead, in order to lead us to the life of holiness, through the communion with the Holy Spirit.
