Dear Brothers and Sisters,

From the bottom of my heart I would like to greet you on the occasion of New Year and Theophany. May newly born Jesus Christ bless you all with a successful new year and prayerful and joyous festivities.

I’m very thankful for your generous donations to our Fundraisers, your hard work during our church pre-Nativity cleaning, bake sale and Christmas bazaar and those who are still working to prepare the Yolka celebration.

Dear Brothers and Sisters in Christ,

I hope that the beginning of the Nativity Fast was joyous for all of us and we will use this time in prayer and repentance to prepare ourselves for joyous celebration of the Nativity of Our Lord Jesus Christ.

As you know, with your holy prayer, accompanied with 3 of our parishioners, I have completed a 10-day pilgrimage to Mount Athos. These 10 days were filled with love and care for us by brethren of the Holy Mountain. We were given hospitality and possibility to serve in many monasteries and therefore we hope that we are able to bring some of this love and blessings to you, our dear brethren.

Dear brothers and sisters in the Lord,
I cordially greet you on the occasion of the upcoming beginning of the Nativity Fast. Although we all do not start this soul-saving journey at the same time, it leads us to the same Universal Celebration, the incarnation of Our Lord and God and Savior Jesus Christ. I wish you all to spend this time in prayer, repentance, good deeds: of love and mercy, so that all of us can happily celebrate Nativity in the flesh of Our Savior.

Dear Brothers and Sisters in Christ,

Taking this opportunity, I’d like to greet everyone with the upcoming feast of the Protection of All Holy Theotokos.

September was a busy month, with many services and many events. We successfully started the beginning of our Saturday and Sunday school year. We began our newly established Cathedral Children’s Choir under the guidance of Zoe Turton and Ganna Semenova. Subdeacon Andrey Aristov is working on the schedule of altar servers. All of these programs need our support and prayers for their success. Let’s wish this program’s participants success in this undertaking.
