Wisdom of the Holy Fathers
“The Holy Scriptures were not given to us that we should enclose them in books, but that we should engrave them upon our hearts.”
“What does the daily invocation of the saints signify — of different ones each day, during the whole year, and during our whole life? It signifies that God’s saints — as our brethren, but perfect — live, and are near us, ever ready to help us, by the grace of God. We live together with them in the house of our Heavenly Father, only in different parts of it. We live in the earthly, they in the heavenly half; but we can converse with them, and they with us. God’s saints are near to the believing heart, and are ready in a moment to help those who call upon them with faith and love.”
“Neither do walls or rich furniture make a home. Millionaires in magnificent mansions may never know a home. But where there are good relationships, where love binds the family together and to God, there happiness is always to be found. For good relationships are heaven anywhere.”
On Sunday October 27th, 2019, during the coffee hour, we will have our Annual All Parish Meeting. Please make plans to stay following Divine Liturgy for this important work in the life of the church.

Welcome to the newly illumined Eleanor Kendall, received into the church through the sacrament of Holy Baptism and Chrismation on Sunday, October 13th. May God grant her and the entire Kendall family Many blessed years!
