Annunciation of the Theotokos Feast Day

On Tuesday the 24th of March, we had the Vespers for the Annunciation of the Theotokos, followed by the Divine Liturgy on the following day. Blessed with the presence of His Grace Bishop Nikandros, and the priests from nearby Parishes, we celebrated this feast day together as, "one Holy, catholic and apostolic Church" (The Nicene Creed); the Orthodox Church.
We have added some of the photos from the Vespers service to our Gallery which can be accessed from here.

"Now in the sixth month the angel Gabriel was sent by God to a city of Galilee named Nazareth, to a virgin betrothed to a man whose name was Joseph, of the house of David. The virgin's name was Mary. And having come in, the angel said to her, 'Rejoice, highly favored one, the Lord is with you; blessed are you among women!'

Sunday of the Veneration of the Holy Cross

Last Sunday we celebrated the "Veneration of the Holy Cross", which always falls on the third Sunday of Lent. A special service was conducted at the end of the Liturgy, where the Cross was placed on a tray, adorned by basil, and taken around the Church. At the end of the service, everyone came to venerate the Cross and receive some basil from the Priest.

Some people have asked, why it is that we use basil to adorn the Cross on this feast day. The reason is:

"On the spot where the Cross was discovered, St. Helen had found a hitherto unknown flower of rare beauty and fragrance, which has been named "Vasiliko", or Basil, meaning the flower of royalty. Note that the word "Vasiliko" means "of the King," since the word "Basileus" in Greek means "King"; so, the plant Vasiliko, Basil, is tied to the Precious Cross of the King of Glory, our Lord Jesus Christ."
(Taken from, http://orthodoxwiki.org/Elevation_of_the_Holy_Cross)

This feast day is closely paralleled to both the feasts of the "Exaltation of the Cross" and the "Procession of the Cross", which are celebrated on September 14th, and August 1st respectively. More information about the Cross can be found in the flyer for the Elevation of the Holy Cross, located on our Catechism Flyer page or by simply clicking here.

Also, the Greek Orthodox Archdiocese of America has prepared a page dedicated to this feast and can be accessed from here.

The Life of a Saint: Gerasimos of Jordan

Gerasimos of Jordan
Feast Day: March 4

The story of Gerasimos, a pious monk who formed an attachment with the acknowledged king of beasts, the lion, has suffered greatly through fictional accounts over the years. It is important to note the power of the Lord Jesus Christ, which extends all things visible and invisible. This account of Gerasimos and his unusual relationship with a lion is proof of that.

Born in the seventh century, in the province of Lycia, Asia Minor, lions roamed the region, as in the account of Sampson from the Old Testament. Having come from a family of leisure-class wealth, it is difficult to believe that he would one day walk away from this life for the simple self-denial that comes from monasticism. Yet, he did just that when he felt the call to the service of Jesus Christ, and left the comfort for the confines of a cloister of the desert. He dedicated himself totally to the Saviour.
