July 2014 Holydays and schedule

    Important messages from Father John:

    Beloved Parishioners and Friends: God the Father has decided to give us another day on earth. Meditation for the Day; He (The Father) who made the ordered world out of chaos and set the stars in their courses and made each plant to know its season, He can bring peace and order out of your private chaos if you will let Him. Our Father is watching over you, also, to bless you and care for you, it doesn't matter if you are a mother, father, grandparents, young or old, sick or healthy we belong to Him. Out of the darkness He is leading you to LIGHT, out of unrest to REST, out of disorder to ORDER, out of faults and failure to SUCCESS. You belong to God and your affairs (good ones) are His affairs and can be blessed by Him if you want.

    Prayer for the Day: I pray that I may be led out of disorder into order, and I pray that I may be led out of failure into success. Amen. Love, Fr. John.

    A reminder to all parents: Bring your children to Liturgy during the summer, it is the will of God, and duty of parents. God really loves families who worship together.
