Webmaster Resigns • Вебмастер уходит на покой
Dear parishioners and friends,

Due to illness the long-time webmaster of the Holy Virgin Cathedral website, Protodeacon Nicholas Triantafillidis, has resigned from his duties. Father Nicholas created HVC's first site and put in countless hours to make it a both a source of information and a means for people to have prayers said for them at St. John's relics and to receive St. John's oil. On behalf of the HVC parish and visitors to the HVC site THANK YOU dear Fr. Nicholas. We ask everyone to pray for Protodeacon Nicholas and his family.

Archpriest Peter Perekrestov

Дорогие прихожане и друзья нашего храма,

Долголетний вебмастер сайта кафедрального собора Всех скорбящих Радости, протодиакон Николай Триантафиллидис, по болезни подал прошение быть освободежнным от своей должности. Отец Николай создал наш первый (и единственный) приходской сайт и вложил в это дело неисчислимое количество времени и сил. Благодаря его трудам информация о приходе, ее жизни, да еще заказы молитв у мощей св. Иоанна и масло от лампады святителя, стало доступным для широкого круга людей. От имени прихожан собора и посетителей соборного сайта приносим о. Николаю глубочайшую благодарность –СПАСИБО, ОТЧЕ – и просим всех молится за протодиакона Николая и его семью.

Eighth Annual Lenten Retreat
Twenty-Ninth Sunday After Pentecost

My Dear Brothers and Sisters in Christ:

Although Jesus spoke this parable as a warning to His countrymen, the Hebrew people, the message in it is most relevant to us, Orthodox Christians. It makes us look inside of ourselves to answer the all-important question, am I truly a Christian or simply calling myself one.

Twenty-Eighth Sunday After Pentecost
My Dear Brothers and Sisters in Christ:

This week's Gospel reading talks about the importance of both being grateful to God and expressing our gratitude to Him. We run to God whenever we have a need for His help. But, are we just as energetic in thanking Him for all of His blessings to us?

Most all of us dream of becoming rich. This Gospel reading shows us why becoming rich might not be such a good idea. (continue)

Twenty-Sixth Sunday After Pentecost

My Dear Brothers and Sisters in Christ:

This Sunday's Gospel reading gives us a vivid picture of how to differentiate between following the letter of God's law and understanding its spirit. We see an example what Scripture means when we read that "the letter (of the law) kills, but the Spirit gives life". (2Cor: 3:6) (continue)

Twenty-Fourth Sunday After Pentecost
My Dear Brothers and Sisters in Christ:

The question that is asked of the Savior in the beginning of this Gospel reading is a momentous question that each one of us needs to be constantly asking. "What shall I do to inherit eternal life?" This Gospel reading answers this question and teaches us not only what we must do but even gives us a most revealing example of how to do it.(continue)
