What’s New

“Seek first the Kingdom of God and His righteousness.”

-Matthew 6:33

During the time of transition to a new pastor, we must assuredly believe that Our Lady the Theotokos, our Protectress, will not leave us without an under-shepherd…so let us continue to worship God every Sunday, together. Let us continue to love one another, to bring our loved ones and friends to “come and see,” to teach our children the Faith, to support our parish with our time, our talent, and our treasure. It is up to us.

God is with us! God is with us, understand, all nations, and submit yourselves:
for God is with us!

 And if I be trusting in Him, He shall be unto me sanctification.

For God is with us…

And I will be hoping in Him, and shall be saved by Him.

For God is with us…

Behold, I and the children which God hath given me.

For God is with us…

The people that walk in darkness have seen a great light.

For God is with us…

 -from Compline of the Nativity of Jesus Christ

 Be not afraid! For God is with us!

Scrip Shopping – Year Round

A wide variety of retailers participate in the scrip program, and if you’re looking for something special that’s not on the table, please ask.  In many cases, it can be ordered.  Many well-known stores and restaurants, for instance, participate.

Remember, you can use scrip for a number of day-to-day stops, like gasoline, groceries, pharmacies, and more, throughout the year. 

Scrip is still the most underused means of helping the Church.  The Church could be benefiting so much more if more were involved. Please consider seeing Lara Hughes after Church.  If you’re new to scrip, start small and find out how easy it is.  Thank you!

From the Bookstore

Our Bookstore has a wide variety of literature and gifts.  Please feel free to browse after Church on Sunday.
