Announcements

Events Calendar

  • Pray for Bishop John Kudrick and all the priests and deacons of the Eparchy of Parma as they attend the 2013 Clergy Convention at Saw Mill Creek in Huron, OH from Monday, 4/22 through 4/25. May God grant them safe travel, inspiring presentations & discussions and fellowship.
  • The Ancient Healing Service is this Wednesday, April 24 at 7 PM. We had 2 good reports to celebrate at our 4/10 service. Bring your acquaintances to have our parish community pray with and for them.
  • The Knights of Columbus Brunch is scheduled for Sunday, April 28. It will follow the 10 a.m. Divine Liturgy. There is a KofC member meeting following today’s church social.
  • On Pentecost Sunday, May 19th, the price of the large 6-day candles will be raised from $5 to $10 each. We light them for our prayer intentions whether it’s for deceased member(s) or for a special intention or in thanksgiving for God’s hearing our past petitions. These are the same reasons that a request for a Divine Liturgy is made. A stipend for the Divine Liturgy is $10 so starting on May 19 the candles will be the same price as a Divine Liturgy stipend.

 

Parish Prayer

Oh God the benefactor of our souls, Grant that by the prayers of St. Athanasius our parish patron,
We may be blessed with the gifts of the Holy Spirit.

Grant that our community would grow in Wisdom, Understanding, Counsel, Fortitude, Piety, Knowledge and Fear of the Lord.  Grant that our community would grow in Charity, Faith, Prudence, Hope, Justice and Temperance.

Oh Confessor and Bishop Athanasius, you said, “God became man so that man could become like God.” Pray for us that we would grow in Spirit.

Through the prayers of the Most Holy Theotokos and all the saints, now and forever. Amen.

 

Reminder: For those who don’t bring food to our church socials but enjoy this important fellowship time please consider putting money in the penny jar so we can continue to provide refreshments. In the past money from fund raising efforts were used to buy snacks & drinks. But now we use all the fund raising income for fund raising costs and parish monthly bills.
