Parish Day School Fund Raiser Thank You! 
24/4/18, 06:00 AM
Posted by Fr. Gregory

Thank you to all who made our fund raiser on April 22 such a resounding success! Thousands of dollars were raised for this crucial endeavor (details will soon be published), Orthodox Christians from all over Metro Detroit came together for a wonderful dinner with great food and entertainment, and we all left invigorated to spread the word to all about our school!

We ask your continued spiritual and material support! More soon to come about next steps in the founding of the Ann Arbor Orthodox Classical Academy!

As promised - a link to the Power Point presentation from April 22:

Monday First Things: Teachings of the Holy Fathers 
23/4/18, 06:00 AM
Posted by Fr. Gregory

“Of course, it would be easier to get to paradise with a full stomach, all snuggled up in a soft feather-bed, but what is required is to carry one’s cross along the way, for the kingdom of God is not attained by enduring one or two troubles, but many!”

Scripture Reading for the Coming Week 
22/4/18, 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: Acts 6:8-7:5 & John 4:46-54
Tuesday: Acts 8:5-17 & John 6:27-33
Wednesday: Acts 8:18-25 & John 6:35-39
Thursday: Acts 8:26-39 & John 6:40-44
Friday: Acts 8:40-9:19 & John 6:48-54
Saturday: Acts 9:19-31 & John 15:17-16:2

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

By St. Justin (Popovich):

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

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:
