October 2015 Holydays and schedule

    October 4 - A message from Father John:

    Hi beloved Parishioners and Friends: A little cool this morning, but it did not STOP the parents from bringing their babies to Liturgy, or stop the parents from bringing their children to Sunday School. Thank you parents you are wonderful in the eyes of God who sees you....part of the Sermon today was: The Cross of Christ is the Way To Heaven.

    Every good thing on earth was placed here by the Bountiful Hand Of God as an expression of His Love and Kindness. Remember the poor are His. The sick are His. Little sick babies are His. Those with Cancer are His. He knows YOU....He is looking down upon you....and He will comfort them and you. Can we ever look at the Cross and say: I HAVE NOTHING TO GIVE TO CHRIST AND HIS CHURCH? The Cross brings us together, Father, Son and Holy Spirit. We are not along, The Cross has brought us together....

    Everyday you leave the house, make the sign to the Cross....it is going to be a long day....and when you come home make the sign of the Cross, because you survived the day.

    Students, everyday when you leave for school, make the sign of the Cross...for protection, for study, for wisdom, for activity. And when you come home, a very busy day, make the sign of the Cross... you made it through the day. What a wonderful spiritual practice. To all have a wonderful week....love Fr. John.

    Important: Saturday, October 10, is our first Pirohi Festival. From 3 to 8:00 PM. We need people to help.
