SAINT PETKA DAY CELEBRATION

Dear Brothers and Sisters:     We would like to inform you that on Sunday, October 26th 2014, we will have a celebration to commemorate St. Petka feast day.      This celebration is dedicated to a very honored and admired saint among our Serbian people. St. Petka was of Serbian heritage. From her youth she lived a monastic life, praying and fasting day and night in the wilderness. She was and still is a role-model for many generations.

      The Divine Liturgy will begin at 10:00 am. Afterwards, a luncheon will be served: homemade dishes, cevaps as well as desserts. The bar will also be open for refreshments. We hope that you will come and take part in this joyous celebration.

     SAINT ARCHANGEL MICHAEL DAY

CELEBRATION ON NOVEMBER 23, 2014

Pre-Lenten Picnic

Divine Liturgy at 10am

BBQ Lunch at Noon

God created the angels to serve Him, and also to serve the human beings who were created in His Image, and according to His Likeness. "He Makes his angels spirits, and his ministers a flame of fire." (Hebrews 1:7). The word "Michael" is a Hebrew word which means "who is like God." It seems that all angels were created holy, but after a period of probation some fell from their state of innocence, due to a deliberate self-determined rebellion against God. We do not know the time of their fall, but it is clear that it occurred before the fall of man, for Satan deceived Eve in the Garden of Eden. "And war broke out in heaven; Michael and his angels fought against the dragon; and the dragon and his angels fought. But they did not prevail, nor was a place for them in heaven any longer." (Revelation 12:7-8) Scripture also shows that good angels will continue in the service of God in the future age, while evil angels will have their part in the lake of fire. (Matt. 25:41)


CHRISTMAS LENT BEGINS ON NOV. 28, 2014! Notes on Fasting

Fasting from foods is intended as spiritual preparation for an experience of deeper communion with God. Each person is a unity of body and soul. A right spiritual diet and a discipline of fasting go together and strengthen each other. Just as prayer benefits not only the soul but also the body so also fasting from foods benefits not only the body but also the soul. Fasting and prayer make us more sensitive to God's personal presence. At important times of their lives the Prophets fasted and prayed. So did Jesus, the Apostles, Saints and Church Fathers. Fasting must be undertaken willingly and not by compulsion. God doesn't need our fasting. We don't fast as a kind of personal punishment for our sins. We cannot pay God back for sins but we can only confess them to Him to receive forgiveness. Fasting with a willing spirit and not just with an attitude of fulfilling a religious obligation means that we keep the purposes of fasting always before us which is to develop self control and to remember God and His Kingdom.
