ARCHPASTORAL LETTER FOR THE GREAT FAST 2014

 Dearly Beloved Members of our Diocesan Family:Bishop Micheal

 Christ is in our midst! –He is and ever shall be!

 As we begin the Lenten journey of the Great Fast this year, I am mindful of a question often asked of us by non-Orthodox --“Why do you fast in Lent?”--and a question often asked by our ownfellow Orthodox Christians --“Why do we have to fast during Great Lent? ”

The 2013 Parish Council Conference for the diocese was conducted regionally in three locations representing the Deaneries of New Jersey, New York City, and New York. Three from our parish attended.

Father Constantine oversaw the growth of a modestly sized parish in Oklahoma City OK to a truly thriving community of over 1,000 souls during his three decades of pastoral ministry. With enthusiasm, clarity, and wit, Father Constantine shared his years of expertise and highly practical methods for making our faith contagious and our churches inviting ~ to new visitors and to those who have fallen out of regular participation in parish life.

    Articles on Saints and Icons

    This section of our website, is a collection of articles about saints, their relics, or their icons. We hope to include articles, of special interest to our parish, on the saints who are depicted on our icons, or whose holy relics rest here. Articles on our feast day icons will be included here also.

    Besides enhancing the beauty of our church, icons remind and instruct us in matters pertaining to the Christian faith. They can lift us up to the prototypes which they symbolize, to a higher level of thought and feeling, to help transform us and sanctify us. Icons can stimulate us to imitate the virtues of the holy personages depicted on them. They serve as a means of worship and veneration.
