Dear Parishioners and Friends,
Please, remember that we are currently in the Season of the Nativity Fast. This Fast helps us realize
that we are preparing for the Birth of our Lord, God and Savior JESUS CHRIST.
It brings us back to the reality that , even during this time of the Pan Demic, the primal and  singular
reason for the approaching Feastday (sometimes called “the Holidays”) is the Birth of our Lord
Jesus Christ, the Son of God and the Son of Mary, Who became a Man, like us, so that, following
after His Divine teaching and  example, we might eventually become like God and inherit eternal
life. Let us observe this Holy Season of the Nativity Fast as best as we can, without making any
excuses to disregard it. This is not at all easy in our contemporary society. However,in this way, our
Lord God will Bless us and help us to greet the Great Feast of His Nativity in peace, and with
strength to live our life as faithful Orthodox Christians. May the Lord help us in this!
