The Invitation

IT’S SUMMER! We bask in this wonderful time for family, friends, relaxing, and fun. It's a time for vacations from work and school. But there is one vacation we shouldn’t consider this summer—and that is from Church. Church should be the center of our lives throughout the year, and summer is no exception. Join us this summer as we #soakuptheSON.

What is #soakuptheSON?

#soakuptheSON is a summer program for individuals, couples, and families to assist them in deepening their relationship with Christ and His Church. The weekly content is offered as a reminder "to commit ourselves and one another and our whole lives to Christ our God." To participate, check out our website and Facebook page each week for a new theme. From there, you can modify the program to your liking.

The most important part of #soakuptheSON is to share it—with your family at home, your family at church, and your family of friends. Share it with us, your family at the Center for Family Care, by using the hashtag #soakuptheSON. We look forward to connecting with you!

Don’t miss out! This summer relax, have fun, and use lots of sunscreen—but most importantly #soakupthe SON!

Soak Up the Son: Week 15

On September 1, we celebrate the Ecclesiastical (Church) New Year. This day has also been set aside by the Ecumenical Patriarch as a special day of Protection for the Environment. During prayers this week, read Psalm 103 (104), which is read at the beginning of Vespers.
