Nativity Greetings - 2006
Dear Beloved Parishioners and Friends of Our Parish,

Greetings on the Great Feast of Our Lord’s Nativity!

Christ is born! Glorify Him!

Some two thousand years ago, the world experienced the greatest event in its history – “the Word was made flesh, and dwelt among us, and we beheld His glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father, full of grace and truth.” (John 1:14)

As we know, this miraculous, yet historic, event divided world history into BC and AD, and salvation history into the Old and New Testaments, as God through His Son established a new relationship with His people. Yet for us Orthodox Christians, the Incarnation of Christ is an event experienced on the most personal of levels. It is an event which divides our lives into two periods – the time before and after we began to know the Lord, experiencing within ourselves His glory, full of grace and truth.

May this year’s celebration of our Lord’s Nativity be not only a reminder of our God’s entrance into our world, and not only a remembrance of the New and Saving Covenant He has established with us, but also a renewal of His entrance into our hearts and minds, into our relationships with each other, and into all aspects of our lives; for in this way we will truly experience the grace and joy brought by the Savior of the world.

In this holy season, I ask your continued prayers for our Mission, and I assure you of God’s enduring blessings upon you all, your families, friends, loved ones, and His entire world.

With love in Christ,

Fr. John

Blessing of Chariots - 07/24/22

On Sunday, July 24, 2022, at the end of the Divine Liturgy, we had the annual Blessing of Chariots (cars, trucks, bikes, etc).  It is a custom of Orthodox Christians to have their cars blessed both when newly acquired and on or near the feast of the Prophet Elias (July 20th), as he ascended as if into heaven on a fiery chariot. We thank God for a truly blessed day!

What is the Orthodox Church?

“The Orthodox Christian Church is evangelical, but not Protestant.
It is orthodox, but not Jewish. It is catholic, but not Roman.
It is not denominational, it is pre-denominational.
It has believed, taught, preserved, defended, and died for the
Faith of the Apostles since the Day of Pentecost nearly 2,000 years ago.”
