JUNE 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 Faithful,

 

The "Great Commandment' tells us we must love God with all our heart, all of our soul and all of our strength.  This sounds great!  But we still ask ourselves how does this love for God manifest itself?

 

There are a few clear ways ... first our love for God manifests itself in our desire to come and to KNOW HIM!  To know Him is only possible with a pure heart ... and a pure heart is achieved only with ascetical labors such as prayer, fasting and almsgiving.  Secondly, if we love God, then we must WORSHIP HIM!  This means we must go to the Temple...and gather together to Glorify & Praise Him with our voice. 

 

And thirdly, we show our love for God by giving THANKS to HIM!  Thanking Him for the gift of creating us and giving us the gift of life.

 

With love in our Risen Lord,

Fr Lev

 

 

 


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.

Social gatherings, church school and coffee hour are still suspended and we will keep you updated to any changes.  

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.

Holy Pentecost and Spring Clean Up

 

June 7th is HOLY PENTECOST, this is our Patronal Feast Day for the parish.  We still do not have a Blessing for social gatherings, which means NO POT LUCK BANQUET!  We do ask you to still participate in the TRINITY CUSTOM, this 'custom' helps us to off-set expenses of the parish, especially our parish insurance.  You may drop your donation at the candle stand or mail it in. May God Bless You!!

 

PARISH SPRING CLEAN UP DAY is scheduled for Saturday June 13th at 9:30am. Please contact Gary Polenychko if you plan to help! Thank you!
