JULY PASTORAL ADDRESS

 

TO THE FAITHFUL WHO ARE WORKING OUT THEIR SALVATION

AT THE SPIRITUAL HOME OF HOLY TRINITY

 

GLORY TO JESUS CHRIST!  GLORY FOREVER!

 

Dear Brothers & Sisters, 

 

Since we live in a time when 'societal' and 'worldly norms' tell us to live for ourselves and self gratification ... I believe it is good for us to listen to what the Church says about being merciful and charitable.

 

Practicing mercy and charity are the hallmarks of a true Christian.  The Holy Fathers were well aware that no amount of fanciful or simply reciting creeds could 'make a Christian truly Christian'. Belief is important and is necessary but not by itself. To be a faithful member of Christ's Church means that one must ACT ... and act with motives aimed at others, making our brethren's lot our own ... treating neighbors with the wondrous respect due a creation of Almighty God should.

 

 

 

With Love In Christ

IMPORTANT INFORMATION ABOUT CHURCH SERVICES

We have the Blessing from the Bishop to assemble for services, as long as we adhere strictly to the CDC guidelines for our safety.  This means we are making the Temple safe for you!  For example:

The Temple is deep cleaned and wiped down and disinfected between services.

Pews have been roped off for physical distancing.

And we ask you to wear a mask, we have some available in the vestibule upon your arrival.

Many social gatherings and church school are still suspended and we will keep you updated to any changes.

Our coffee hour has resumed, however we will be having it outside as weather permits, certain other gatherings may occur outside as well, with safe measures in place. 

If you have any questions or concerns, please contact Fr Lev.

 

 

ADDITIONAL PRAYER DURING THIS UNCERTAIN TIME

O God Almighty, Lord of heaven and earth, and of all creation visible and invisible, in thine ineffable goodness, look down upon us, thy people gathered in thy Holy Name. Be our helper and defender in this day of affliction. Thou knowest our weakness. Thou hearest our cry in repentance and contrition of heart. O Lord who loves mankind, deliver us from this Corona Virus. Send thine angel to watch over us and protect us. Grant health and recovery to those suffering from this virus. Guide the hands of physicans, protect the caretakers, and preserve those who are healthy. Enable us to continue to serve our suffering brothers and sisters in peace that together we may glorify thy most honorable and majestic name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, now and ever and unto ages of ages.
