OCTOBER PASTORAL ADDRESS

 

 

 

 

TO THOSE WORKING OUT THEIR SALVATION AT THE SPIRITUAL HOME OF HOLY TRINITY

In The Name Of The Father And Of The Son And Of The Holy Spirit

GLORY TO JESUS CHRIST! … GLORY FOREVER!

 

Dear Brothers & Sisters,

 

As Orthodox Christians we know we are to LOVE one another and be merciful. This can be difficult to do when people are mean and mistreat us … yet it is what we do if we are truly to be a disciple of Christ.

 

The Holy Fathers of the Church teach us, that ‘we are to be by Grace what God is by Nature.’  This growing into God’s likeness is called THEOSIS. This movement involves living our lives as persons who imitate God. We know that God has revealed Himself to be a loving Father who is compassionate and filled with infinite mercy. We are called to love one another and have mercy because He first loved us! We are called to forgive because He has first forgiven us!  We are called to be merciful because he was first merciful to us!

 

May we live this Holy life, by God’s Grace which will bring us great Joy!

 

With love in Christ,

Fr. Lev

SPECIAL MAINTENANCE PLEA

Last month we distributed a special plea letter within our church publications!  The church is in need of some major repairs.  We want to thank all those who generously answered our plea!

We have raised a significant amount towards our goal, however, we are still in need.  What we have left is fencing repairs around the church, thus far we have raised approximately $6,500.00 towards a $15,000.00 estimate!

If you are able to help reach our goal, please send your donations marked with maintenance plea to the church.  God Bless you for your support!

The Holy Trinity outreach ministry has a patron saint, St. Juliana of Lazarevo!

On the third Sunday of each month, we do a "Dollar Donation Day" to support this ministry. If you can, donate a dollar to help out!  Thank you to all those who have donated thus far!   

Thank you to those who continue to help with packing lunches for the ODO and who bring in hygiene kit supplies!  Our mission cannot be completed without all your help!

Our next meeting will be held Sunday October 30 after Liturgy!  Join us!

We are continuing to collect items to make hygiene kits for those in need. Items include: deodorant, combs, lotion, adult toothbrushes, soap, washcloths, razors, and hand sanitizer. If you are able to donate, please bring the items into the church hall where there is a box provided to collect items!
