  • Patriarchal Encyclical for Christmas (2023)

    Ecumenical Patriarchate

    December 19, 2023

    With the grace of God, we are once again this year celebrating in chant, hymn, and spiritual song the Nativity according to the flesh of the pre-eternal Son and Word of God, namely the manifestation of the mystery of God and humankind. According to St. Nicholas Cabasilas, what occurs in the Divine Liturgy is “the mystagogy of the Lord’s incarnation,” while its introductory acclamation “Blessed is the Kingdom of the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit” is evidence “that it is through the Lord’s incarnation that people first learned that God is three persons.”[1] The same saintly Father proclaims that our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ was the first and only to demonstrate the authentic and perfect human being, concerning His ethos, life, and everything else.”[2]

  • St. Michael's Home Construction Update: Your Assistance is Urgently Needed!

    (2019 - ) Archbishop Elpidophoros

    December 19, 2023

    While almost $1,000,000 was raised at the recent Name Day Gala (see report below), the harsh reality is that the funds on hand are only sufficient to keep the construction moving forward a month or so. Unless we receive additional funding, we will be left no option but to TEMPORARILY suspend construction.  If you have not already participated in the Capital Campaign with a generous contribution or if you have already made a donation and want to make another to keep construction moving forward, NOW is the time for you to act. Suspending construction will not only result in increased costs to restart the work, but more importantly, will delay the opening of the new facility which is critical to serve the increasing needs of the elderly community.
