Diocesan Assembly Thanks

Posted by Fr. Gregory

Thank you to our parish delegates to the tri-annual Diocesan Assembly held this last week in Des Plaines, IL. Our parish delegates were Jack (Aleksey) Mitchell, Konstantin Poplavsky, and Dmitri Knysh. Also attending from our parish was Karl (Mercurius) Meyer (Diocesan Council) and Dmitri Kapousta (Diocesan Pastoral School). The assembly was a great success and we are thankful to the Lord for His mercy. Please find the Assembly Resolution on page 3 of our weekly bulletin, Sunday Reading:

The resolution and additional documentation will be published on our diocesan web site this coming week.

Monday First Things: Teachings of the Holy Fathers 
18/6/18, 06:00 AM
Posted by Fr. Gregory

Prayer in church is important. The best thoughts and feelings come in church, yes, and the enemy attacks more violently in church, but with the sign of the Cross and the Jesus Prayer, you drive him away. It is good to stand in some dark corner in church and to pray to God. Let us lift up our hearts! the priest exclaims, but our mind often creeps along the ground, thinking about indecent things. Fight against this.

Weekly Educational Offering 
13/6/18, 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.

For Adults: an explanation of this coming Sunday's Gospel reading from Blessed Theophylact:

No Cell Phones in Church Please 
12/6/18, 06:00 AM
Posted by Fr. Gregory

Please be courteous to your fellow worshipers and be sure to turn off your cell phone when entering the church, or at the very least turn the ringer to the vibrate function. When traveling in Russia Fr. Gregory saw this sign: "Those cell phones that ring in church will be submerged in Holy Water!". We will not go that far, but we hope this helps you remember how important it is to turn off your phone...

Thank you for you attention to this important matter!

Monday First Things: Teachings of the Holy Fathers 
11/6/18, 06:00 AM
Posted by Fr. Gregory

You need not be despondent. Let those be despondent who do not believe in God. For them sorrow is burdensome, of course, because besides earthly enjoyment they have nothing. But believers must not be despondent, for through sorrows they receive the right of sonship, without which is impossible to enter the Kingdom of Heaven.
