Lenten Recipes! 
24/2/23, 06:00 PM
Posted by Fr. Gregory

We are often asked about Lenten recipes. One can't really make it through any fasting period on only peanut butter and jelly. We present here some recipes that you may find helpful to diversify your diet during the upcoming lent. Remember: anything that is vegan fits the fast, and since vegan diets have become popular lately, you can search for these on the Internet. We can't comment on the quality of the recipes you'll find when you make such a search, but the recipes below are GOOD!

Following Liturgy: Lenten Dinner ~ После Литургии: Постный Ужин

The Liturgical Fast for those communing begins after breakfast. In other words, you may eat breakfast, but eat or drink nothing further after that. Parents should use their best judgment regarding their children, as always. Those who confessed on the weekend prior to the Wednesday Presanctified need not confess again on/before Wednesday.

Пост для причащающихся начинается после завтрака, т.е. можно позавтракать, но не пить и не есть после завтрака. Как всегда, родители должны сами решить, что лучше всего подходит для детей. Исповедовавшиеся в предшествующую субботу или воскресенье в среду могут не исповедоваться.

Infants do not commune at this Liturgy ~ Младенцы не причащаются на этой Литургии

Non-Perishable Food Collections: Always at STV 
23/2/23, 06:00 AM
Posted by Fr. Gregory

At STV we collect non-perishable food items. Always. We don't have food drives - we do this every single day. There are many people in our local community who are food insecure. We ask our parishioners to bring a can or box of non-perishable food every time they come to church. Make this a part of your family worship! The little you give means a lot to a family who is food insecure. Remember our Lord's admonition to us in this regard: "For I was an hungred, and ye gave me meat: I was thirsty, and ye gave me drink: I was a stranger, and ye took me in: Naked, and ye clothed me: I was sick, and ye visited me: I was in prison, and ye came unto me. Then shall the righteous answer him, saying, Lord, when saw we thee an hungred, and fed thee? or thirsty, and gave thee drink? When saw we thee a stranger, and took thee in? or naked, and clothed thee? Or when saw we thee sick, or in prison, and came unto thee? And the King shall answer and say unto them, Verily I say unto you, Inasmuch as ye have done it unto one of the least of these my brethren, ye have done it unto me." (Matthew 25:35-40)

Weekly Educational Offering - Prepare for the Coming Sunday! 
22/2/23, 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 children’s 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 Various Ages: from the Antiochian Archdiocese

Due to the confluence of the funeral of Priest Daniel Shirak and the impending ice storm, the Midnight Office scheduled for Wednesday morning at 9:00 a.m. has been canceled. Fr. Daniel must be vested in his priestly vestments before the funeral, and with the ice storm approaching, this must be done on Wednesday morning. Please spread the word to those whom you know, or even suspect, were planning to attend the service on Wednesday morning. We ask the forgiveness of all for any inconvenience.
