October 2018 Message From Fr. Peter

Monday, October 01, 2018

The Church New Year has begun and parish life is back into full swing as we enter into the season of Autumn.

I am pleased that the recent holy days of the Nativity of the Mother of God and the Exaltation of the Holy Cross were well attended. Church School has begun and we have resumed our weekly Bible Study. All of this of course with preparations for our Annual Slavic Food Fest taking place, our annual picnic and our ongoing outreach work at the Lord’s Kitchen.

Bishop Gregory has often reminded us that it is important that we be active Orthodox Christians in both our spiritual lives and in the lives of our parish community. The world needs us to be light and salt, to help others navigate the stormy seas of life.
