"Blinded in the eyes of my soul, I cry out to Thee, O Christ, like the man blind from his birth, and in repentance I cry to Thee: Thou art the exceeding radiant light of those in darkness!"

Christ is Risen! Truly He is Risen!

And He brings enlightenment and peace to all who desire it — to all who turn away in disgust from the darkness that so often besets us, who flee to Him with tears, who repent of the many poor choices we have made and seek redemption by His grace from the pit we have dug for ourselves!

On this last Sunday of Pascha let us renew our prayer for this enlightenment, knowing that He will not delay to grant us our desire. And so let us meet the holy feast of His Ascension with joy, knowing that He raises us with Himself!

Glory to Thee, our God, glory to Thee!


Announcements

We will be taking up a special collection this Sunday to support Holy Trinity Monastery in Jordanville, NY, which is faced with some very expensive mandatory repair work on their facilities. Please help!


 

Our new facility brings with it many new maintenance and upkeep tasks. Matushka Marina and Reader David Hawthorne need volunteers to help get all the work done.If you can give a few hours of our time to help care for God's house, please contact Matushka Marina, Reader David or Deacon Nicholas and we'll tell you how you can help.

We have a list of things our parish needs. If you or somebody you know wish to supply one of these items, please contact us.
