“Byzantine Basics”

Our Byzantine Catholic Church has prayers for each of the three persons of the Trinity. It is highly recommended that each of these prayers be committed to memory. This allows easy access to these powerful and beautiful prayers even when we are very anxious or otherwise unable to be eloquent with God.
-To the Father (“Our Father”): Our Father, who art in heaven, Hallowed be thy name. Thy kingdom come. Thy will be done on earth as it tis in heaven. Give us this day our daily bread, and forgive us our trespasses, as we forgive those who trespass against us, and lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil.
-To the Son (“Jesus Prayer”): Lord Jesus Christ, Son of God, have mercy on me a sinner.
-To the Holy Spirit (“Heavenly King”): Heavenly King, Comforter, Spirit of Truth, everywhere present and filling all things, treasury of blessings and giver of life; come and dwell within us, cleanse us of all stain, and save our souls O gracious One.ANNUAL VISIT BY ST. NICHOLAS
This year the annual visit will be held on Sunday, December 9th. A pot-luck luncheon will be sponsored by the Proto-Cathedral of St. Mary parish and the Presentation of Mary Romanian Catholic parish.
