Video "An Introduction to Orthodoxy"

For those looking for a new Parish home, or just looking for an introduction to the Orthodox Christian faith, parishioner Zachary Held has created a short documentary film, narrated by Fr. David. Thanks to Zachary for his efforts! The film can be seen on Zach's youtube channel by clicking here: "An Introduction to Orthodoxy"

Memorial Soul Saturdays

As Orthodox, it is natural for us to pray for the departed as it is for those who are still alive. We are taught that the departed are no longer able to rectify their lives as they could on earth; hence, their only hope is for us to pray for them and to do good deeds in their name in order to cover any unrepentant sins that they have brought into the next life. As an act of love and mercy, The Church has set aside four Saturdays this year, called Memorial (Soul) Saturdays to publicly commemorate all her departed children: March 9,30 (Pre-Lent); April 6,13 (Great Lent); June 22 (Eve of Pentecost) and October 19 (Demetrius Sunday). A form was included in the bulletin, and is also available at the Candle Desk, and can be found below. Please write their FIRST names only, and drop it off at the church or rectory. Our bright and joyous faith teaches us that someday, you will again see them in a renewed form.
