Bulletin for 27 November

Concerning Faith and Works

I believe that man's natural virtue -- whatever its degree -- cannot save a man and bring him to eternal life. The Scriptures teach: "All our righteousness is like unto a menstrual rag" (Isaiah 64:6 ). The fulfillment of the works of the Law does not permit us to demand or to merit something from God. Not only do we have no merits or supererogatory works, but Jesus Christ enjoins us that when we have fulfilled all the works of the Law, we should esteem ourselves as nothing but "unprofitable servants" (Luke 17:10 ). Without Jesus Christ, a man's personal virtue, his repute, his personal value, his work, his talents and his faculties matter but little; they matter only insofar as they test his devotion and faith in God. Our faith in Jesus Christ is not an abstraction but rather a communion with Him. This communion fills us with the power of the Holy Spirit and our faith becomes a fertile reality which engenders good works in us as the Scriptures attest "which God prepared beforehand that we should walk in them" (Ephesians 2:10 ).

Bulletin for October 9

Repose of the Holy Apostle and
Evangelist John the Theologian

The Holy, Glorious All-laudable Apostle and Evangelist, Virgin, and Beloved Friend of Christ, John the Theologian was the son of Zebedee and Salome, a daughter of St Joseph the Betrothed. He was called by our Lord Jesus Christ to be one of His Apostles at the same time as his elder brother James. This took place at Lake Gennesareth (i.e. the Sea of Galilee). Leaving behind their father, both brothers followed the Lord.

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.
