This Week...

July 13, 2024

The nuns of St Mary of Egypt Monastery that were here last week gave me their names so we can pray for them, the list will be in the Narthex.

There is Bible Study/Class this Weds July 17th at 6pm.

On July 21st  there will be a blessing of the blue altar and analogy covers at the end of the Liturgy and following the Post-Communion prayers will be the Blessing of the cars.

In a few months we will begin to take collections for the Christmas program for the school kids, if you wish to be the primary coordinator for this project please see Fr. Mikel, or Bill Weiss.  No experience is required as there will be people to help and guide you throughout the process.

When parking please be courteous and do not block anyone in.  If the church lot is full you may park on the street or across the street at Bamboo Bakery.

If you are donating cash and you wish to receive a statement of your contributions to the church, please put the cash in an envelope with your name and email address.

During these summer months when you are traveling on vacation please don’t forget the church. Always remember to tithe, as this is very important, and an offering to God. The tithe goes into the operating budget to keep the church running, and in this way we are able to bring Christ to the community.    

We have within us deeply rooted weaknesses, passions, and defects. This can not all be cut out with one sharp motion, but patience, persistence, care and attention. The path leading to perfection is long. Pray to God so that he will strengthen you. Patiently accept your falls and, having stood up, immediately run to God, not remaining in that place where you have fallen. Do not despair if you keep falling into your old sins. Many of them are strong because they have received the force of habit. Only with the passage of time and with fervor will they be conquered. Don't let anything deprive you of hope.

St. Nectarios of Aegina


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.
