FATHER NICOLAS' MESSAGE

My Beloved Friends and Parishioners of the Saint Spyridon family,

"Do not be afraid; henceforth you will be catching men." These words spoken by our Lord Jesus Christ to His disciples are words of authority. When Jesus rose from the dead He was not only victorious over evil, but also gave us hope. Hope is like the light we, as Christians, are carrying to the world. Hope opposes fear. Hope becomes a means for bearing Christ’s witness. Hope is the main instrument of Christ's disciples.

Please find in our weekly bulletin all the necessary information you need for the upcoming Church activities and events.

With Christ’s love,

Fr. Nicolas

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.
