CALENDAR OF EVENTS

  • December 15th: 9:30 AM, Divine Liturgy and Holy Anointing

 

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.  This will follow the Divine Liturgy which will be celebrated at 10:00 AM.  Please bring sufficient food for your family and six guests.  “St. Nicholas” will visit with all the children 10 years of age or younger, and present them with small gift.  Parents make sure that you register your child or children when you sign up for the pot-luck luncheon.  The deadline for signing up is Sunday, December 2nd

RETIREMENT FUND FOR RELIGIOUS COLLECTION

Annual collection will be taken up next Sunday, December 9th.  A donor writes: “Your flyer touched my heart – seeing the retired religious, such memories surfaced.”  Do you remember the sisters, brothers or religious order priests who made a positive difference in your life?  Today many are elderly and need assistance.  Their religious communities struggle to meet retirement needs while continuing to serve the People of God.  Please support next week’s second collection for this worthy cause.

 

CHURCH FATHERS SPEAK

“Prayer, fasting, vigils and all other Christian acts, however good they may be in themselves, certainly do not constitute the aim of our Christian life; they are but the indispensable means of attaining that aim.  For the true aim of the Christian life is the acquisition of the Holy Spirit of God.  As for fasts, vigils prayer and almsgiving, and other good works done in the name of Jesus, they are only the means of acquiring the Holy Spirit of God.  Prayer is always possible for everyone, rich and poor, righteous and sinful, noble and simple, strong and weak, healthy and suffering.  Great is the power of prayer; most of all it brings the Spirit of God and easiest of all is it to exercise (St. Seraphim of Sarov).”

 

“It is impossible to enjoy idling thoroughly unless one has plenty of work to do.”

Jerome K. Jerome

“Where God’s love is, there is no fear, because God’s perfect love drives out fear.”

 John 4: 18
