FATHER NICOLAS' MESSAGE
Beloved Friends and Parishioners of Saint Spyridon,
This Sunday after Theophany, Christ’s Ministry begins. His teaching touches at the heart of our Christian faith: “Repent, for the kingdom of heaven is at hand.” These words that we keep hearing in the Gospel are an invitation to continuously change our life. Repentance is not only to see our sins, but to acknowledge our weaknesses and ask God to give us strength through his grace.
Today, we will also share our community vasilopita thanks to the generosity of our Philoptochos ladies.
Come and join us at the beginning of the New Year for a time of worship and spiritual fellowship.
I am still available to come and bless your home. Please, contact the church office to set up an appointment.
With Christ’s love,
Please join us every Sunday for the celebration of the Divine Liturgy, followed by fellowship and coffee in our Social Hall.
Sundays: Orthros (Matins): 9:00 AM | Divine Liturgy: 10:15 AM
Complimentary valet parking on Sundays.
If you are interested in sponsoring a Coffee Hour after Church Services on Sunday, please call the church office.
For additional information on church services, please contact the Church office at (212) 795-5870 between the hours of 9:00 AM - 5:00 PM, Monday through Friday.
NEW CHILDRENS QUIET ROOM
Please feel free to bring your child to the Quiet Room to read a book if they are restless in church. Our Quiet Room is outside the elevator on the church level. There are sofas and a basket with books.
IN TIMES OF ILLNESS
"Come, O blessed of my father, inherit the Kingdom prepared for you from the foundation of the world; for I was sick and you visited me." (Matt. 25:31-46).
When a member of our Parish is ill and has been hospitalized or may be recuperating at home, the immediate family of the ill person should contact Father Nicolas at (212) 795-5870. It is beneficial to both the body and the soul when our priest prays for us when we are healthy or ill.
