Bulletin for August 14

Procession of the Honorable Wood of the Life-Giving Cross of the Lord (First of the three “Feasts of the Savior” in August)

The Procession of the Venerable Wood of the Life-Creating Cross of the Lord: In the Greek Horologion of 1897 the derivation of this Feast is explained: “Because of the illnesses that occur in August, it was customary, in former times, to carry the Venerable Wood of the Cross through the streets and squares of Constantinople for the sanctification of the city, and for relief from sickness. On the eve (July 31), it was taken out of the imperial treasury, and laid upon the altar of the Great Church of Hagia Sophia (the Wisdom of God). From this Feast until the Dormition of the Most Holy Theotokos, they carried the Cross throughout the city in procession, offering it to the people to venerate. This also is the Procession of the Venerable Cross.”

Welcome to Saint John “The Baptist” Ukrainian Orthodox Church

Our Parish is a member of the Ukrainian Orthodox Church in the U.S.A. Our Church is a part of the Ecumenical Patriarchate of Constantinople with His All-Holiness, Patriarch Bartholomew being the 270th Successor to the Apostle Andrew.

Our Parish is part of the Eastern Eparchy (Diocese). Our ruling Bishop is His Eminence, Metropolitan Antony of New York and Washington, D.C. .

Our Church doors are always open to anyone who hears the voice of Christ calling them to “Come and See.” Although we are extremely proud of our Ukrainian heritage, most of the Divine Services are celebrated in English and are sung according to our traditional melodies. It is the purpose of our Parish Family to bring the Gospel message of Our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ to as many people who hear the call of Christ and are searching for a Church that follows the Apostolic tradition that was given to the first Apostles by Christ, Himself. Our Church is a Church that was born on Pentecost Sunday and has traveled the road of 2000 years steeped in Apostolic tradition and Apostolic succession in its lineage of Bishops.

In the future, this part of the Web Page will contain Parish News—explanations of our Services, a more in depth look at events happening in our Parish as well as in the Orthodox world. If you are interested in learning more about our Ukrainian Orthodox Church in the U.S.A., then return to our home page and click on the section for our Diocese.

We hope that you will e-mail us at the bottom address of our Home Page and let us know what you think of our page. Please feel free to e-mail us any questions that you might have about our Parish Family or our Orthodox Faith.

May God bless you and keep you always in His tender loving care!

STEWARDSHIP PRAYER

My Church is composed of people like me.
I help make it what it is.
It will be friendly if I am.
Its pews will be filled, if I help fill them.
It will do great work, if I work.
It will make generous gifts to many causes,
if I am a generous giver.
It will bring other people
into its worship and fellowship,
if I invite and bring them.
It will be a church of loyalty and love,
of fearlessness and faith,
and a church with a noble spirit,
if I, who make it what it is,
am filled with these same things.
Therefore, with the help of God,
I shall dedicated myself
to the task of being all the things
that I want my church to be.

AMEN.
