Children's Christmas Program

Every Sunday the children and their helpers will prepare for a Christmas program to be presented to the parish the week before Christmas (actual date still to be determined). In the course of preparing for the play, the children will learn the story of the birth of Jesus from an Orthodox Christian perspective and what it means for us all. Thy will also learn different parts of the Nativity icon and their meaning. During the Sundays before Christmas they will participate in decorating parts of a large icon that will be assembled as part of the play. Please help us by making sure all children are present for the Sundays leading up to Christmas.

Thought for the Day

"Repentance means to change our attitude, our behavior, our way of thinking, and to focus on that moment which will bring salvation and a new page in our life." -- His Eminence, Metropolitan JOSEPH
Happy Father's Day
Happy Father's Day

 

In many homes this week, families were faced with a similar dilemma:  What shall we buy Dad for Father's Day?  Fathers never seem to need or want anything!  May we suggest, however, three priceless items that EVERY father is sure to cherish?

RESPECT is the first gift we can give.  Many a child has ultimately come to the same conclusion that the famous author Mark Twain once reached:  THE OLDER WE GET, THE WISER OUR FATHERS BECOME!  Unfortunately, children in their formative years of development often show little respect for their father's wishes, failing to recognize the wisdom that comes from years of worldly experience.

UNDERSTANDING is the next gift we might consider for our fathers this year.  While young people often lament a father's seeming lack of understanding of their point of view, it should be noted that children rarely show consideration for the reasons behind dad's directives and actions.  Raising children is an enormous responsibility, and the youngsters who are able to understand that the rules and regulations set down by their father are for their well-being will find an abundance of happiness in their home life.

Finally, the gift of LOVE should be given out generously to all fathers on Father's Day.  The warmth and affection of his children is all that any father really seeks.

If the Lord has already taken your father's soul to his eternal care, say a prayer today that he will be merciful to him.  Those who are still blessed with having their father with them should vow to present them with the gifts of RESPECT, UNDERSTANDING and LOVE every day, not just on Father's Day, for this is the basis of the 5th Commandment:  Honor you Father and Mother.
