The New Year – 2012

“Let your demeanor, your dress, your walking, your sitting down, the nature of your food, the quality of your being, your house and what it contains, aim at simplicity…Be  a help to your friends, kind to the ones with whom you live, gentile to your servant, patient with those who are troublesome, loving towards the lowly, comforting those in trouble, visiting those in affliction, never despising anyone, gracious in friendship, cheerful in answering others, courteous, approachable to everyone, never speaking your own praise nor getting others to speak of them, never taking part in unbecoming conversations, and concealing where you may whatever gifts you possess.”  -St. Basil the Great!

Events Calendar

  • The Patristics Theology class resumes this Tuesday, January 3rd.
  • A Divine Liturgy is being celebrated for the holy day of obligation for the feast of the Theophany of Our Lord on January 6th at 5:30 PM. Bring containers so you can take holy water home. Use it in your home, car, place of employment, etc. Incorporate the use of holy water each day throughout the year. How? Bless yourself each morning, for a safe journey make the sign of the cross on your car with the Theophany water before driving, to give to anyone who is ill, and add holy water to your beverages of coffee, tea, water, etc.
  • The first Ancient Healing Service in 2012 will be Wednesday, January 11 at 7 PM.

House Blessings

It is our tradition to bless all parishioners’ homes in the few weeks following the celebration of Theophany. Please let the rectory know when you’re available to have Fr. Sid bless your home with the new Jordan water that is blessed this Friday evening, January 6th.  Use the House Blessing form inside today’s bulletin.
