Posted by Fr. Gregory

The schedule of services for the first week of Great Lent at STV is available at the link below. Standard services to attend are the Monday-Friday evening services, Liturgy on Saturday, Vigil on Saturday, and Liturgy on Sunday. Yes - that is a lot! And maybe you won't make it to EVERY one. But if we don't tell you what to shoot for you'll never make it. May the Lord grant us all to begin Great Lent with zeal, and to carry that zeal into the entire Lenten period and beyond!

Weekly Educational Offering - Prepare for the Coming Sunday! 
8/2/23, 06:00 AM
Posted by Fr. Gregory

We present here a short educational offering for both children and adults on the upcoming Sunday's principle Gospel reading so that all can better prepare for the Divine Services. 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.

Liturgy Canceled 2/7/23 
6/2/23, 10:30 PM
Posted by Fr. Gregory

Friends,

It pains me greatly to have to cancel Liturgy for my own names day, but unfortunately I have to do that. I went to the doctor today for ear pain and was confirmed with my first ear infection since childhood. I had hoped that I would feel well enough, having started antibiotics, to serve. But I am still feeling quite ill, and there are people coming from quite a distance tomorrow for Liturgy. I dont want those visitors to drive a long way to come to a locked church. So I need to decide tonight, and unfortunately I have to choose to cancel. :(

I ask your forgiveness and your prayers! We still hope to see all of you at our house on Thursday evening at 6 pm to celebrate my names day together as a parish family!

In Christ,

Fr. Gregory

Therefore, be brave and strong in the Lord, and dont let your eagerness flag. Rather, keep seeking and crying out constantly, regardless of whether you receive anything or not.

Scripture Reading for the Coming Week 
5/2/23, 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: II Peter 1:20-2:9 & Mark 13:9-13
Tuesday: II Peter 2:9-22 & Mark 13:14-23
Wednesday: II Peter 3:1-18 & Mark 13:248-31
Thursday: I John 1:8-2:6 & Mark 13:31-14:2
Friday: I John 2:7-17 & Mark 14:3-9
Saturday: II Timothy 3:1-9 & Luke 20:45-21:4

: II . 1:20-2:9 13:9-13
: II . 2:9-22 13:14-23
: II . 3:1-18 13:248-31
: I . 1:8-2:6 13:31-14:2
: I . 2:7-17 14:3-9
: II . 3:1-9 20:45-21:4

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