Gardening Ministry


Presbytera Ann Routos and Tanya Bang are starting a gardening ministry. Are you interested in getting involved in a hands-on gardening project or donating a perennial plant?



Some of the existing perennials plants in the flower beds around the church need to be split up and replanted for them to grow to their full and best potential. We would also like to plant additional perennial plants. We invite everyone to participate or contribute, in any of these ways:



  1. Be part of the "hands-on" gardening crew and help with weeding or planting in the flower beds. All ages welcome, if under 8 years old with parental supervision.
  2. Contribute a perennial plant from their home garden to be planted at the church by a gardening team member.
  3. Purchase a perennial plant for the gardening team to plant on their behalf.
  4. Donate money to purchase plants or fertilizer.

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.
