No Parking in the Handicapped Lot... 
6/2/16, 06:00 AM
Posted by Fr. Gregory
Unless you have a handicapped license plate or hang tag. Even if the spaces are open. It is immoral to take parking spaces from those who need them and this is happening too often. Please see Fr. Gregory or Nathan with questions or concerns.

Great Lenten Lecture Series 2016 
5/2/16, 06:00 PM
Posted by Fr. Gregory
This year Great Lent starts quite late: March 14 in fact. But that will not keep us from holding our annual Great Lenten Lecture Series! The inaugural lecture will be given by His Eminence Metropolitan Jonah on Sunday, February 28 (yes a bit before Great Lent, but well within the time of the Lenten Triodion so certainly close enough!), and we are working out details for a keynote lecturer later in Great Lent. The theme of this year's series is The Practice of the Ancient Church. Please plan to join us each Sunday of Great Lent during our parish meal for a lecture on this theme!

Patriarch Kyrill and Pope Francis to Meet in Cuba February 12 
5/2/16, 12:00 PM
Posted by Fr. Gregory
According to a joint press release by the Moscow Patriarchate and the Vatican, Patriarch Kyrill and Pope Francis will meet in Cuba on Friday, February 12 - one week from today. The western media has already begun to report things about the impending end of the schism between East and West. This seems a bit optimistic, and neither the Moscow Patriarchate nor the Vatican are claiming anything of the sort. Perhaps this will be the beginning of a long process that will end the schism, and of course that would be welcome. If all can unite in truth. But for now, let us pray that the meeting will be fruitful and lead to further constructive dialogue between the two largest Christian Churches. More information can be found at the links below. Please contact Fr. Gregory with questions or concerns.

Volunteer Opportunities Helping Fr. Gregory 
4/2/16, 06:00 AM
Posted by Fr. Gregory
As most of our parishioners are aware, Fr. Gregory has several responsibilities in addition to being our parish Rector. He is the Dean of the Michigan Parishes of the Russian Orthodox Church Outside of Russia, the Dean of our Diocesan Seminary, and the Secretary of the the Diocesan Council. All these things are getting done, but with some help they could be done much better than they are. Presently there are two volunteer opportunities to help Fr. Gregory with these duties:

1. Help with the Michigan Deanery. This year we will found a mission advisory board for the Deanery. We will also establish a web site for the Deanery. It would be good to increase communication between the clergy within the deanery as well. This volunteer will have a direct impact on the founding of new parishes in Michigan in areas that are unserved or very under-served by the Orthodox Church. In other words, this volunteer will make a real difference in spreading Orthodox Christianity in our state.

2. Help with the Seminary. This year we intend to found a foreign language sector of the seminary, and we may execute a joint agreement with a seminary in the former Soviet Union. Much work is also needed in reinvigorating our Catechist program. If the Michigan Deanery volunteer is successful in helping to found new parishes, then the Seminary volunteer will focus on helping to prepare new clergymen and catechists to spread the faith in our state (and beyond).

Please contact Fr. Gregory if you would like to volunteer or if you would like to learn more. Both volunteer opportunities have very flexible work schedules and hours. We can work around your schedule!

Weekly Educational Offering  
3/2/16, 06:00 AM
Posted by Fr. Gregory
We present here a short educational offering for both children and adults. Parents are asked to review the childrens portion with their children. It is very important for us to attend the Divine Services on Sundays and whenever else we are able, but in addition it is our spiritual responsibility to educate ourselves and our families in the faith. It is our hope that this mid-week offering will be an aid in this regard. Please contact Fr. Gregory with questions or suggestions.

For Adults: the explanation of last Sunday's Gospel reading by Blessed Theophylact:

For Children an activity based on last Sunday's Gospel reading for various ages:

Parish Church Open Hours Daily - can you help? 
2/2/16, 06:00 PM
Posted by Fr. Gregory
We would like to keep the parish church open daily at certain set hours. Perhaps something like 4:00 p.m. - 8:00 p.m. daily. This would allow everyone to know for certain that at least during that time they could come and pray, light candles, and otherwise seek the solace that can only be found in God's house. But we need volunteers to help us with this project. Could you help? Would you be willing to commit to being at the church at a set time weekly? Most certainly the volunteers will also benefit from this service to their fellow believers and a little more time spent in church each week. Please contact Fr. Gregory if you can help, and with suggestions about the best time for the church to be open. This is an important missionary activity - please help if you can!
