Easter Reflection 2024


My Brothers and Sisters in the Household of God,

 

We are not here tonight in order to remember a historical event of centuries past. We are not here in expectation of a future promise. Rather we are gathered to celebrate a reality of the present. Let us remember the words of our Lord and Savior treasured in the 5th chapter of the Gospel according to John. “Truly, truly, I say to you, the hour is coming and now is, when the dead will hear the voice of the Son of God and those who hear will live” (John 5:25).

 

That hour is NOW. It is NOW that the devil is stripped of his power. It is NOW that to continue click here

PASCHA FELLOWSHIP HOUR- Easter morning after the Divine Liturgy, come, break the fast, and celebrate the Glorious Resurrection of our Lord and Savior. The Board of Directors will provide roast lam


b and liquid refreshments. Bring a dish to share and join your fellow parishioners in the celebration. All are welcome! Kindly let the office know what you will bring to share and if you can assist with setting up and cleanup after the event. Καλή Ανάσταση!

Prosphoro


Bread has been the emblem of God’s providence for us, throughout humanity’s history. Both physical (bread as food) and spiritual - the επιούσιον (epiousion) or “supersubstantial” bread of the Lord’s prayer, the bread of Holy Communion.


In the Orthodox Christian church, the pinnacle of our worship is union with Christ, both spiritually but also physically, by consuming the Body and Blood of our Lord Jesus Christ.


Since the Last Supper, before every Divine Liturgy, one or more of the faithful prepare and bring bread to church to be used as the Body of Christ in the Eucharist. The Orthodox church is liturgical. For those of us who bake prosphoro, the liturgy begins as we prepare to bake!


Prosphoro is an offering to God, made from His material gifts to us, and prepared lovingly and prayerfully.


A special website is available to share with the faithful this ‘proper’ method of preparation of the holy gift according to the Greek Orthodox tradition. Please click here to learn how to bake this beautiful offering.
