Weekly Sunday Bulletin – 1st Sunday of Luke

allsaintsSeptember 27, 2015

Thy Martyrs, O Lord, in their courageous contest for Thee received as the prize the crowns of incorruption and life from Thee, our immortal God. For since they possessed Thy strength, they cast down the tyrants and wholly destroyed the demons’ strengthless presumption. O Christ God, by their prayers, save our souls, since Thou art merciful.

Beheading of St. John the BaptistAugust 23, 2015

The memory of the just is celebrated with hymns of praise, but the Lord’s testimony is sufficient for thee, O Forerunner; for thou hast proved to be truly even more venerable than the Prophets, since thou was granted to baptize in the running waters Him Whom they proclaimed. Wherefore, having contested for the truth, thou didst rejoice to announce the good tidings even to those in Hades: that God hath appeared in the flesh, taking away the sin of the world and granting us great mercy.

Weekly Sunday Bulletin – All Saints Sunday

Picture1June 7, 2015

When God brings His hidden saints to light, it is in   order that some may emulate them and others be without excuse. Those who wish to remain amid distractions as well as those who live a worthy life in communities, in mountains and in caverns (Heb.11:38) are saved, and God bestows on them great blessings solely because they have faith in Him.

Altar Boy Retreat

On October 11th, 2014 from 2-5PM there will be an Altar Boy Retreat. We ask that any young gentleman who will be an Acolyte/Altar Boy for the 2014-15 year to attend.  Please spread the word to families who might want their son to become an acolyte here at St. Demetrios.

At our retreat, we will have what is called a Teaching Liturgy.  We will actually celebrate the Liturgy all together and we will learn about the Liturgy as well as all the essentials of being an Acolyte from the robes that we wear, to the processions and movements of Liturgy done by the Acolytes and the Priests. It will be a wonderful opportunity for prayer, love,  fun and fellowship together.  More information and details will be announced at later date!  If there are any questions or suggestions please do not hesitate to email me or call Sampson 954-467-1515.
