In everything that we do God looks at the intention, as has frequently been said, whether we do it for him or for any other motive. Therefore when we wish to do something good, let us not have human applause in view but rather God, so that always looking to him we might do everything on his account; otherwise we shall undergo the labor and still lose the reward.
Excerpt from: The Third Century on Love - #48
†St Maximus the Confessor
The new wood flooring is being installed in the church during the week of January 24th. Everything in the Church (from the Candle Room all the way through to the Altar) has to be moved out to the hall on Sunday afternoon the 23rd.
Additionally, (almost) everything needs to go back at the end of the week before Vespers on the 29th. We’ll likely have two sets of times for the move back - Friday evening the 28th and Saturday morning / early afternoon the 29th-more details later on the move back.
We will have an All-Parish Meeting on February 6th during Fellowship Hour to discuss the Heavenly Vision Phase 1 progress and plans for Phase 2.
Family Promise Volunteers are needed to cook or provide take-out for approximately two homeless families. Please sign up on the poster board in the Narthex or contact Maria (Sue) D’Orazio.
It is time to formalize some of the groups mentioned at the All Parish meeting in November. In addition to our current service groups, please let Father know if you are interested in being part of one or more of the following:
• Community Outreach (the local poor & needy)
• Homebound / Nursing Home Outreach (for our own)
• Maintenance / Inspection
• Hospitality (providing meals, hosting showers, etc)
• First Responder (hospital or crisis)
A binder is now on the glass cabinet in the narthex (entrance). This is a wish list of items we could use - altar server vestments in the colors we lack, gold chalices, censer stand, etc. If you are willing to sponsor an item please let Sb.Dn. Basil Peck or Father Silouan know.
Please remember to check under the baby's seat when you are about to leave Fellowship Hour. Some of the little ones leave quite the mess!
Father has the sign-up sheet - catch him at Fellowship Hour.
Home blessing after Pascha and during the summer are an option as well.
