Words to remember and live by


Father Nicholas

 Make up your minds ahead of time not to worry  about how you will defend yourselves. Because  I will give you such words  and wisdom that none of your enemies will be able to refute  or contradict what you say. ( Luke 21:14-15)

STEWARDSHIP 2015

During the month of December, all faithful parishioners are asked to look into their hearts and make their pledge for the 2015 year. It would help the church a great deal if all pledge cards are returned to the church by December 31st. For office purposes, it is important to fill the pledge card out in its entirety.

The campaign to eliminate Prophet Elias’ $500,000 mortgage has begun! We’re asking all parishioners to make a 5-year commitment of $5000 or $1,000/year or $83/month or $19/week. If all parishioners participate either individually or cooperatively, we will be able to raise the necessary funds to pay off the mortgage.
