New Icon Given - Another Ordered 
30/12/21, 06:00 PM
Posted by Fr. Gregory

Thank God, we have received a beautiful gift for our parish – a full size copy of the Pochaev Icon of the Mother of God. We will place this icon in a prominent place – above the icon of St. John of Shanghai & San Francisco. But we will need an icon to go above St. Xenia too – otherwise the balance of the iconography will be quite out of sorts. The perfect icon to bring us back to symmetry would be an icon of St. Job of Pochaev of the same size. THANKS TO ALL WHO HAVE GIVEN WE HAVE COLLECTED MORE THAN 50% OF THE COST OF THE ICON! We have therefore ordered the icon – but we need to finish collecting the second half of the cost of the icon so we can pay the iconographer when he finishes in a few weeks. :)

We have decided to crowd fund this – so everyone can add their part and pay for the icon of St. Job together as a parish family. Please make a donation today – and if we all do this together we’ll get this paid for very quickly! -Fr. Gregory

Weekly Educational Offering - Prepare for the Coming Sunday! 
29/12/21, 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 Adults: from the writings of several Holy Fathers

For Youth: from the Antiochian Archdiocese (various age groups)
