Events Calendar

  • The Ancient Healing Service is this Wednesday, Jan. 9, at 7 p.m.
  • There are 2 holy days between now and the start of the Great Fast. January 30th is the simple holy day of the Three Holy Hierarchs and February 2nd is a solemn holy day of the Encounter of Our Lord with Simeon and Anna.
  • The 1st All Souls Saturday is Jan. 26. Make sure you’ve provided all deceased family names to the rectory.

 

House Blessings

It is our tradition to bless all parishioners’ homes soon after the celebration of Theophany. Please let the rectory know when you’re available to have Fr. Innocenti bless your home with the new Jordan water that was recently blessed.

 Please remember the sick of the parish and their family & friends. May God’s healing power be upon them.

Evangelization

Does the word evangelization frighten you?; make you squirm a little?; say that I don’t want to preach to others?; or all these? According to Gus Lloyd in his book “Magnetic Christianity –Using Your God-Given Gifts to Build the Kingdom” he sees evangelization as sharing your story on how God has worked in your life. Gus suggests you tell people about your path to where God has brought you up till now and how He continues to direct you on your path to Him. Isn’t that a relief? No preaching, just share your experiences. The goal of evangelization is to use God’s influence in your life to draw people to Him. In Mr. Lloyd’s book he discusses 11 attributes that can help anyone attract people so they can see Christ working in us. In this New Year make the commitment to seek God for yourself and then share it with others. Using the Holy Spirit you can’t fail. And reading the “Magnetic Christianity” book is a good step in that direction.
