Thoughts for the Week
Wisdom From the Holy Fathers

"A place cannot save you...Because there is no place where you can flee from yourself."

†St. Nikon of Optina

"Do not dispute over the truth with someone who does not know the truth; but from the person eager to know the truth, do not withhold words from him."

†St. Isaac the Syrian

"Patiently endure the distressing and painful things that befall you, for through them God in His providence is purifying you."

†St. Thalassios the Libyan

"At least once in our life we must light a candle for those whom we insulted, whom we deceived, whom we stole something from, whom we owed, and we did not pay our debt."

Upcoming Events
Vespers on Saturday - August 19th - 08/17/17

A Reader’s Vespers will be celebrated at St. Michael’s this coming Saturday, August 19th, at five o’clock pm, led by Stephen Peck.  As neither Father Barnabas nor Father Deacon James will be at church this Saturday, it would be appreciated if a parish council member, or someone else with a key, could open the church between four o’clock and four-thirty to let people in, and then lock up afterwards. Thank you.
