TO THE FAITHFUL WHO ARE WORKING OUT THEIR SALVATION AT THE SPIRITUAL HOME OF HOLY TRINITY
IN THE NAME OF THE FATHER AND OF THE SON AND OF THE HOLY SPIRIT, AMEN!
Dearly beloved in the Lord,
‘BEHOLD, THE VIRGIN SHALL BE WITH CHILD, AND THEY SHALL CALL HIS NAME IMMANUEL’. (Isaiah 7:14)
With these words, the Prophet Isaiah expressed the hopes of his people as they anticipated the coming of the Messiah, the ONE destined to bring about the long awaited reconciliation between mankind and its Creator. It was the prophets of old who struggled to prepare for the SAVIOR’S appearance, who proclaimed the ultimate LIGHT in the midst of unbearable darkness, and who revealed ‘the true LIGHT which gives light to every man coming into the world’ (John 1:9). In the Incarnation of our Lord, JESUS CHRIST, their words … and the hopes and longings of God’s people … were fulfilled, as the only-begotten Son of God reconciled the world with Himself, offering new life to all who would receive it.
Dear friends, Matushka Victoria and I extend Nativity greetings and love to all of you. Let us, together, sincerely prepare ourselves for Christmas with prayer and fasting so that we may truly proclaim from our hearts …

St. Juliana is collecting items for Christmas for indigent residents of a Detroit nursing home. Last year most of these residents received nothing for Christmas but the gifts we gave them. This year we are collecting the following items for the 150 residents: men’s and women’s socks, body lotion, toothpaste, toothbrushes, word search puzzles, adult coloring books, and larger cellophane or other gift bags to put all these items in. We would be grateful for your help in collecting these items. There is a sign-up sheet downstairs on the bulletin board near the kitchen. You can also donate money toward the purchase of these items.
