Iconostasis

The new icon screen continues to be improved.  The trim was added, nails heads were covered, and the majority of the wood was re-stained. Coating the cherry wood with oil still needs to be done. Please thank Bishop John who has entrusted the iconostasis to our parish. Thanks to all the parishioners who’ve donated their time. It’s great to see so many people take ownership in their parish to help beautify our church.

The Great Fast

While fasting from food is important, many things in our ever challenging world can become damaging to the soul.  Whatever we deem to be more important than our relationship with the Triune God puts our salvation at risk.  Some examples might be:  money, therefore we should tithe properly or give alms; TV, computers, video games, sports etc. might be another competitor from which we might fast.  We should make a greater effort to attend and participate in the Presanctified and All Souls Liturgies and to spend more time in prayer, so that our relationship with God might be healed or improved.   “O my soul, devote yourself to repentance and unite yourself to Christ in mind.  Cry out and groan, Pardon my terrible deeds, that I may receive from you, who alone are good, forgiveness and eternal life.”  May you have a great and joyful fast!
