JANUARY PASTORAL ADDRESS

 

 TO THOSE FAITHFUL WHO ARE WORKING OUT THEIR SALVATION

AT THE SPIRITUAL HOME OF HOLY TRINITY

 

 

CHRIST IS BORN!  GLORIFY HIM!

 

 

 

 

 

 

Dear Spiritual Children,

 

As we begin a new calendar year many of us make resolutions. As your spiritual Father I would like to give you one ... this is a resolution you need to work at every moment of this up-coming year ... and here it is ... to live HOLY lives that are pleasing to GOD!  In other words, to be SAINTLY!

 

Every Christian is called to be "HOLY", that is, to be a person who remembers God and is living in communion with God.  Such a person is open to being a vehicle of God's Grace and a faithful herald of God's presence in this world.  This means that every Christian is called to be a "SAINT". Each Christian is called to be a person through whom God works to bring about the salvation of the entire world.

 

 

 

 

 

With Love And God's Blessings 

for a Healthy & Happy New Year,

Fr Lev

 

 


IMPORTANT INFORMATION ABOUT CHURCH SERVICES AND COFFEE HOUR

We have the Blessing from the Bishop to assemble for services, as long as we adhere strictly to the CDC guidelines for our safety. 

UPDATE:  Archbishop Paul has issued a directive due to the rising cases of COVID in Michigan.  He believes it is necessary to suspend social hour at this time, however he has given his blessing to those who go into the fellowship hall for a cup of coffee before departing the holy grounds.  We will continue to update you with any other changes. 

We continue to do our part in making the parish safe for you at all services:

For example:

The Temple is deep cleaned and wiped down and disinfected between services.

Pews have been roped off for physical distancing.

And we ask you to wear a mask, we have some available in the vestibule upon your arrival.

We also have disposable gloves and hand santiziers placed in and around the church and fellowship hall.

Many social gatherings are still suspended and we will keep you updated to any changes.

Our coffee hour is being held in our fellowship hall on a 'to go' basis.  You may go downstairs for a coffee and donut to go as you leave the grounds.

We have done our best to keep you as informed as possible with the changes in mandates and guidelines provided to us.

Please check our website, bulletins or contact the church directly with any questions, as we may make changes to services or events as needed.

If you have any questions or concerns, please contact Fr Lev.

 

 

ADDITIONAL PRAYER DURING PANDEMIC

O God Almighty, Lord of heaven and earth, and of all creation visible and invisible, in thine ineffable goodness, look down upon us, thy people gathered in thy Holy Name. Be our helper and defender in this day of affliction. Thou knowest our weakness. Thou hearest our cry in repentance and contrition of heart. O Lord who loves mankind, deliver us from this Corona Virus. Send thine angel to watch over us and protect us. Grant health and recovery to those suffering from this virus. Guide the hands of physicans, protect the caretakers, and preserve those who are healthy. Enable us to continue to serve our suffering brothers and sisters in peace that together we may glorify thy most honorable and majestic name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, now and ever and unto ages of ages.
