JANUARY PASTORAL ADDRESS

 

 

 

 TO THE FAITHFUL WHO ARE WORKING OUT THEIR SALVATION AT THE SPIRITUAL HOME OF HOLY TRINITY

 

In the name of the Father and of the Son and the Holy Spirit … Amen!

 

GLORY TO JESUS CHRIST!  GLORY FOREVER!

 

HAPPY NEW YEAR!

 

Dear brothers & sisters,

The celebration of the Great Feast of the Nativity of Our Lord Jesus Christ is coming to an end, but at the same time the WORK of Christ’s Birth is actually now beginning.

As we take down our Christmas ‘decorations’ to store them in the attic or the basement, let us be careful not to take down Christ as well.  He was meant not for the attic but for the living room of your heart all year round.

If Christ consistently dwells in your life, there will be no serious let-down feeling the ‘day after’ Christmas.  Jesus’ presence will make all the post festal days warm with His Power, His Forgiveness, His Grace and His Love!

Matushka Victoria and myself pray God bestows His blessings upon all of you for a happy, healthy and peaceful NEW YEAR!

 

 

With love in Christ,

Fr. Lev

HOLY TRINITY OUTREACH

Look to this section for all updates and projects the outreach is doing!  We continue to volunteer our time with many programs!

 

From the St. Juliana Outreach Ministry

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

On the third Sunday of each month, we will be doing 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!  

In honor of our patronal saint's feast day on January 2nd, the St. Juliana Outreach Ministry will be launching a collection for a local charity beginning in early January.  Details coming soon!
