Happy 4th of July Weekend

Every nation is a community, with its own historical memory, earthly homeland, and struggle for well-being and perfection. It was to the nations that Christ sent his apostles: “Go therefore and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, teaching them to obey everything that I have commanded you” (Mt 28:19-20). The Christianization of the nations depends upon the gradual formation of a Christian worldview and structuring of life. The Christian culture of a given nation is a means for transmitting the faith from one generation to the next. It nurtures within a nation a love for God, for one’s earthly homeland, sacrificial service for the sake of its well-being, and an honest attitude towards work; it strengthens bonds within families, among relatives, and in the society. The mutual permeation of the Gospel and the culture of a people is expressed in the self-governance of a Church.

Updated Guideline

Glory to Jesus Christ!

Like many other aspects of our life here on earth, the human dimension of the Church stands in humble acknowledgment that the Coronavirus, its duration and impact, and the most  effective response, is not as clear as we would like it to be.  We at the Proto-Cathedral will continue holding our liturgies, with the established precautions and protocols, and we ask that all participants continue to respect and observe these guidelines for the sake of unity in the church, and out of love for one another.  After considering new data regarding this pandemic, and more restrictive civil guidelines, Bishop has allowed me to offer a general dispensation from the requirement to attend Sunday Divine Liturgy for the rest of the month of July.  Again, Liturgies will continue to be held according to the usual schedule, but if your well-formed conscience feels that you should not be attending, feel free to stay home and celebrate the Lord’s Day in a way that is fruitful to your personal spiritual life.  Let’s continue to pray for health wisdom and holiness!

-Fr. Michael
