Cupola Icons - 2013

Cupola Icons - 09/01/2013

The cupola icons were all painted by the hand of our fellow parishioner and artist, Olga Poloukhine.  Olga worked many months on this project to adorn our church cupola with sacred images.  The central icon is of Our Lady of the Sign.  The side panel icons depict patriarchs, prophets, and saints of the past as well as the 20th Century.  The photographs were taken prior to the installation and blessing that took place on Sunday, September 1, 2013.

Nativity Vigil 2012

Nativity Vigil - 01/01/2012

With deep gratitude, our faith community celebrated the birth of our Lord.  This great feast challenges us to ask ourselves: "Where is Bethlehem?"  Is it found only in the ancient city of David?  Is it only in the church or at home with loved ones gathered around the Christmas tree? Yes, Bethlehem is there, but it is also in our hearts.  There the Lord waits for us in the manger of our own human frailty; in the cold, silent places of our inner life where we often forget to seek Him.  He asks us to make room for his coming and to celebrate Him with the angels.  Christ is born!  Glorify Him!

Feast of Saint Nicholas 2012

Feast of Saint Nicholas - 01/01/2012

Today our parish celebrated the Feast of Saint Nicholas.  Several children of the parish helped bake the prosphora (offering bread) used in today's divine liturgy.  We also began the liturgy with an open proskomidia during which the bread and wine, typically prepared in the sanctuary, were instead prepared in the nave as a learning opportunity for the faithful present.
